In my heart I have always
wanted to see,
All the beauty of Newfoundland
put here for me;
Having travelled around now
on many a strand,
I'm convinced we should call this
God's beautiful land.

Have you ever seen Trinity
when morning is still?
Have you gazed on Placentia
from old Castle Hill?
Have you seen Bay St John
with its game on the wing?
Have you seen Cape St Mary's
and heard the birds sing?

And the Man In The Mountain
looks down on the vale,
While the Humber flows on
past the old country trail;
Have you sailed past Cape John
on a beautiful day,
And seen Mother Earth
on her throne by the Bay?

Have you ever been up
on old Signal Hill,
And looked down on St John's
while the city is still?
Have you sailed to Bell Island
that gem in our crown?
Have you met the lovely people
from Harbour Grace town?

Newfoundland, Newfoundland,
the most beautiful place,
Where the mountains and the valleys
have been touched by God's grace;
Where the ocean and the rivers
and the lakes hold great store,
Where the ice flows and the wind blows
off the great Labrador.

Have you seen Isle aux Bois
off the Ferryland shore?
Have you seen the great icebergs
that sail past our door?
Have you seen the giant whales
in our bays by the score?
Have you seen the Northern Lights
over great Labrador?

Have you seen Barry's Cove
when the water is low?
You can see the old cannon
from long, long ago,
And a horse on a stand
in the midst of the sea.
You can see them out there
from old Fleur de Lys.

Have you seen Fortune Harbour
in Notre Dame Bay,
Where the devil sat down
and played poker all day?
On top of the world
in a place called Gros Morne,
You can see in the valley
where beauty was born.

Newfoundland, Newfoundland,
the most beautiful place,
Where the mountains and the valleys
have been touched by God's grace;
Where the ocean and the rivers
and the lakes hold great store,
Where the ice flows and the wind blows
off the great Labrador.

Newfoundland, Newfoundland, Newfoundland,
Newfoundland, Newfoundland the beautiful.
