God Keep Our Land

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

My favorite line is the plea: God keep our land. Sadly, there are many Canadians who don’t share that heartfelt plea for our country. God help us! We must pray for them, ourselves and our country.

I didn’t realize our anthem was originally written in French, then translated into English and revised. Then direct translation is quite a bit different than the above song we sing so proudly. Check it out for yourself!

And just for fun: things you might not know where invented in Canada.

Happy Canada Day!
