True north strong and free

Let that flag fly! Happy Canada Day to fellow Canadians everywhere … and whoever else wants to join in the party.
Now … time for a singalong.

O Canada
Our home and native land
True patriot love
In all thy sons command

With glowing hearts we see the 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

O Canada, Canadian national anthem, lyrics by Justice Robert Stanley Weir, music by Calixa Lavallée.
Here’s more than you’d ever want to know about the tune … and lyrics for the official French and bilingual versions, too.
