The Maple Leaf Forever

on | Filed under Canadians

1. In days of yore, from every shore,
Dauntless heroes bravely came,
And planted firm fair freedom’s flag,
On Canada’s wide domain.
Here may it wave, our hope and pride,
And bind in trust forever,
The Lion and the Unicorn,
The Maple Leaf Forever.

Long may she fly,
Our emblem dear,
The Maple Leaf forever,
God keep our land and heaven bless,
The Maple Leaf forever.

2. At Queeston Heights and Chateauguay,
Our brave 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.


3. Our fair Dominion now extends,
From Cape Race to Nootka Sound,
May peace forever be our lot,
And plenty for all abound.
And may those ties of love be ours,
Which discord cannot sever,
And flourish green in freedom’s home,
The Maple Leaf forever.
