A Land Called Labrador (Harry Martin) video

There's a land of boundless beauty,
Where the untamed rivers run,
And majestic snow-capped mountains,
Rise to meet the morning sun.

There are silent sunlit valleys,
Undiscovered, unexplored;
It's a home for free of spirit,
It's a land called Labrador.

Legends of our people spoken,
In the language of the land,
Tell of hard times and injuries,
Strangers would not understand.

As they trapped across the tundra,
From the highlands to the shore,
From us all the land is broken,
And our people suffered more.

Let her mountains shine in glory,
Let her unspoiled waters flow;
Let her children live in freedom,
In the valleys of the snow.

Lift your voices, sons and daughters,
Like you've never done before;
Let your song rise through the darkness,
In this land called Labrador.

Lift your voices, sons and daughters,
Like you've never done before;
Let your song rise through the darkness,
In this land called Labrador.
In this land called Labrador.
