Canadian Songs & Anthems O Canada! God Save the Queen Maple Leaf Forever Something to Sing About This Land is Your Land Ontari-ari-ari-o Ode to Newfoundland Vice Regal Salute Hockey Night in Canada
O Canada! O Canada! Our home and native land! True patriot love in all thy sons command. With glowing hearts we see thee rise, The True North strong and free! From far and wide, O Canada, We stand on guard for thee. God keep our land glorious and free! O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God Save the Queen 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!
Maple Leaf Forever 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 joined in love together, The thistle, shamrock, rose entwine, The Maple Leaf forever.
Maple Leaf Forever O, land of blue unending skies, Mountains strong and sparkling snow, A scent of freedom in the wind, O'er the emerald fields below. To thee we brought our hopes, our dreams, For thee we stand together, Our land of peace, where proudly flies, The Maple Leaf forever.
Something to Sing About I have walked 'cross the sand on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland, Lazed on the ridge of the Miramichi. Seen the waves tear and roar at the stone coast of Labrador, Watched them roll back to the great northern sea. From the Vancouver Island to the Alberta Highland, 'Cross the prairie, the Lakes to Ontario's towers. From the sound of Mount Royal's chimes out to the Maritimes, Something to sing about, this land of ours.
This Land is Your Land This land is your land, This land is my land, From Bonavista, to Vancouver Island From the Arctic Circle to the Great Lakes waters, This land was made for you and me.
Ontari-ari-ari-o Give us a place to stand And a place to grow, And call this land Ontario. A place to live For you and me, With hopes as high As the tallest tree. Give us a land of lakes And a land of snow, And we will build Ontario, A place to stand, A place to grow, Ontari-ari-ari-o.
Ode to Newfoundland When sun rays crown thy pine clad hills, And summer spreads her hand, When silvern voices tune thy rills, We love thee, smiling land. We love thee, we love thee, We love thee, smiling land. As loved our fathers, so we love, Where once they stood, we stand; Their prayer we raise to Heaven above, God guard thee, Newfoundland God guard thee, God guard thee, God guard thee, Newfoundland
