The Second, Third and Fourth Verses of our National Anthem

O Canada! Where pines and maples grow,

Great prairies spread, and lordly rivers flow,

How dear to us thy broad domain, From East to Western Sea!

Thou land of hope for all who toil! Thou True North, strong and free!

God keep our land, Glorious and free!

We stand on guard, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada! We stand on guard for thee.

O Canada! Beneath thy shining skies

May stalwart sons and gentle maidens rise,

To keep thee steadfast thro’out the years From East to Western sea,

Our own beloved native land! Our True North, strong and free!

God keep our land, Glorious and free!

We stand on guard, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada! We stand on guard for thee.

Ruler Supreme, who hearest humble prayer,

Hold our dominion in Thy loving care.

Help us to find, O God, in Thee, A lasting, rich reward,

As waiting for the better day, We ever stand on guard.

God keep our land, Glorious and free!

We stand on guard, we stand on guard for thee,

O Canada! We stand on guard for thee. “
