Song For Canada

English Words by Paul Halley
French Words by Anton Raphael Boldaire


Sing!

 
Sing a new song,

Sing loud and strong,

Sing of this land of our hopes and our dreams.

Rich harmonies Of races and creeds

Join in the chorus from sea unto sea:

Where the whale's ancient lullaby

Meets the song of the wind in the whisp'ring pines,

All our voices come together, always singing,

"Land of tomorrow, your time has come."

 

Oui-

Qu'un nouveau chant

Dise a present

Un voeu d'accord qui doit remplir nos coeurs.

Peuples divers

Touchant les deux mers,

Heureux voisins, ne formez qu'un seui Choeur

Pour melanger tous vos accents

Aux refrains des cognees dansant sous les vents.

Que nos voix ensemble chantent et rechantent,

 "Oui - Bel aujourd'hui, Vois mon pays."

 

Sing!

Sing of new birth,

Sing of the earth,

Sing of great mountains that reach for the sky.

Proud cities swell,

Vast plains do tell

Of the promise and hope for the future that lies

In the loon's timeless melody,

In the cry of an eagle that's soaring free.

All our voices come together, singing,

"Land of tomorrow, your time has come."
