Versions of O canada

Won Collier’s Weekly magazine contest for new English lyrics

 

O Canada! In praise of thee we sing;
From echoing hills our anthems proudly ring.
With fertile plains and mountains grand
With lakes and rivers clear,

Eternal beauty, thou dost stand
Throughout the changing year.
Lord God of Hosts! We now implore
Bless our dear land this day and evermore.
Bless our dear land this day and evermore.”
