L’hymne national du Canada

« Ô Canada! Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux
Car ton bras sait [knows how to] porter l’épée,
Il sait porter la Croix!

Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brillants exploits.

Et ta valeur [worth], de foi trempée [lit. soaked in faith] ,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits. »

Translation of the French Lyrics

O Canada! Land of our ancestors,
You wear a crown of 
florets glorious.
Because your arm can carry a sword
And [because it] can carry a Cross.

Your history is an epic tale
Of the most brilliant deeds.
And (because) your worth, (is) steeped in Faith,
It (your worth/value) will protect our homes and our rights.

Canada’s National Anthem

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.
