True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,

May stalwart sons and gentle maidens rise,

To keep thee steadfast through the years

Official Lyrics of O Canada (French)

 

 1. O Canada! Terre de nos aieux,

Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux

Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,

Il sait porter la croix!

Ton histoire est épopée

Des plus brilliants exploits.

Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

 

 3. De son patron, précurseur du vrai Dieu,

Il porte au front l'auréole de feu;

Ennemi de la tyrannie,

Mais plein de loyauté,

Il veut garder dans l'harmonie

Sa fière liberté.

Et par l'effort de son génie,

Sur notre Sol asseoir la vérité,

Sur notre Sol asseoir la vérité!

 

 

2. Sous l'oeil de Dieu, près du fleuve géant,

Le Canadien grandit en espérant,

Il est né d'une race fière,

Béni fut son berceau;

La ciel a marqué sa carrière

Dans ce monde nouveau.

Toujours guidé par Sa lumière,

Il gardera l'honneur de son drapeau,

Il gardera l'honneur de son drapeau.

 

 

4. Amour sacré du trône et de l'autel

Remplis nos coeurs de ton souffle immortel.

Parmi les races étrangères

Notre guide est la foi;

Sachons être un peuple de frères,

Sous le joug de la loi;

Et répétons comme nos pères

Le cri vainqueur: « Pour le Christ et le Roi ».

Le cri vainqueur: « Pour le Christ et le Roi ».

God Save The Queen
 
1. God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us;
God save the Queen!

2. O Lord our God arise,
Scatter her enemies
And make them fall;
Confound their politics,
Frustrate their knavish tricks,
On Thee our hopes we fix,
God save us all!

3. Thy choicest gifts in store
On her be pleased to pour;
Long may she reign;
May she defend our laws,
And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice,
God save the Queen!

  4. Not in this land alone,
But be God's mercies known,
From shore to shore!
Lord make the nations see,
That men should brothers be,
And form one family,
The wide world over.

5. From every latent foe,
From the assassins blow,
God save the Queen!
O'er her thine arm extend,
For Britain's sake defend,
Our mother, prince, and friend,
God save the Queen!

6. Our loved Dominion Bless
With peace and happiness
From shore to shore
And let our Empire be
Loyal, united, free,
True to herself and thee
For evermore!

The Maple Leaf Forever

1. In days of yore,

From Britain's shore,

Wolfe the dauntless hero came,

And planted firm Britannia's flag

On Canada's fair domain.

Here may it wave,

Our boast, our pride,

And join in love together,

The thistle, shamrock, rose entwined,

The Maple Leaf Forever !

 

 

                 [ Chorus ]

 

2. At Queenston Heights and Lundy's Lane

Our fathers side by side

For freedom's home and loved ones dear,

Firmly stood and nobly died.

And so their rights which they maintained,

We swear to yield them never.

Our watchword ever more shall be:

The Maple Leaf Forever !

 

 

                  [ Chorus ]

 

 

3. Our fair Dominion now extends

From Cape Race to Nootka Sound

May peace forever be our lot

And plenty a store abound

And may those ties of love be ours

Which discord cannot sever

And flourish green for freedom's home

The Maple Leaf Forever !

 

 

          [ Chorus ]

 

 

                      Chorus

 

 

The Maple Leaf

Our emblem dear,

The Maple Leaf Forever !

God save our Queen and heaven bless,

The Maple Leaf Forever !
