Have you ever really listened to the ocean,
And answered its beckoning call?
Have you ridden on the waves of its streamers,
And felt the swell of its rise and fall?

Have you ever had the courage to go sailing,
On waters where no one sailed before?
You have sailed the ship of John Cabot,
And found a home on Newfoundland shore.

Yes, we are a sea-fearing people,
With saltwater blood in our veins;
Boats have been our cradles and our coffins,
A fierce humble pride still remains.
Living on hearts filled with courage,
Harvesting the sea and the land;
Living on our love of tradition,
A legacy of Cabot's Newfoundland.

And for the strength that long has sustained us,
With family ties that will always bind;
Where every harbour offers sanctuary,
And every home offers peace of mind.

Yes, we are a sea-fearing people,
With saltwater blood in our veins;
Boats have been our cradles and our coffins,
A fierce humble pride still remains.
Living on hearts filled with courage,
Harvesting the sea and the land;
Living on our love of tradition,
A legacy of Cabot's Newfoundland.

'Cause Newfoundland has long been an anchor,
In a world filled with troubled seas;
Together we'll survive through tomorrow,
With our pride in Cabot's legacy.

Newfoundland will always be an anchor,
In a world filled with troubled seas;
Together we'll survive through tomorrow,
With our pride in Cabot's legacy.

Together we'll survive through tomorrow,
With our pride in Cabot's legacy.
