This is my own land so fertile and beautiful,
Majestic her mountains, her rivers run free;
Privileged the children, who call her their homeland,
Canada, my own land forever you'll be.

The sun rises first on the green shores of Newfoundland,
On Vancouver Island, he sheds his last ray;
The great Arctic Circle reflects back his glory,
Wheat-laden plains grow more golden each day.

And this is my own land so fertile and beautiful,
Majestic her mountains, her rivers run free;
Privileged the children, who call her their homeland,
Canada, my own land forever you'll be.

Proud are the people who travel your highways,
The farmer, the teacher, the factory hand;
The merchant, the miner, the doctor, the fisherman,
Proud to belong to this beautiful land.

And this is my own land so fertile and beautiful,
Majestic her mountains, her rivers run free;
Privileged the children, who call her their homeland,
Canada, my own land forever you'll be.

Famed is your power and famed is your gentleness,
Your bounty is endless from sea to shining sea;
Your arms ever open to help those less fortunate,
A bright light of freedom to those who would be free.

And this is my own land so fertile and beautiful,
Majestic her mountains, her rivers run free;
Privileged the children, who call her their homeland,
Canada, my own land forever you'll be.
Canada, my own land forever you'll be.
