Oh Canada, our Home and Native Land…


I am one of the few that is able to claim both Canada and the States as my home.  My dad was born in Canada and I was born in the States.  So I have the privlidge of being able to be a fanboy of both Countries, although I will say this, I appreciate Canada for its laid back attitude and the States for its go-getter attitude.  Today is the the anniversy of Canada’s national anthem.  The year was 1880 and “Oh Canada” was first perfromed in Quebec City, Quebec.  Lyrics for Oh Canada appear below, in English and Frech for you Canadains who speak French : )

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.
Ô Canada!
Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!
Car ton bras sait porter l’épée,
Il sait porter la croix!
Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brillants exploits.
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
