My Canada by Dr. Stephen Gill


My Canada

in thy lap

lie all nations

humans and beasts

melt into one shape

under thy care

my Canada.

Thy land and life

and springs

thy summer and fall

and skies

thy joyful birds--

delight-giving sights--

breathe a new life in me

my Canada.

A nation so great

diverse and brave

thy rivers and lakes

wide and long highways

reveal thy riches to me

my Canada.

Thy soul

a serene temple

for every creed

for every breed.

My heart will sing

always for thee

my lips will chant

night and day for thee.

O Canada!

My well of love

full for thee.

A peace-adoring dove

never my love

shall cease for thee

my Canada.
