Happy Canada Day and Happy 150th Birthday Canada

Happy Canada Day! Happy 150th Birthday to the Country I was born in and the Country I Love!

Today is about celebrating the great nation that is Canada – a country that brought us Ryan Gosling, Justin Bieber, that man in the green mask and maple syrup. Oh yes and mounted police.

Millions will commemorate the date Canada became a fully fledged nation in its own right with feasts, fireworks, parades and red and white flags.

Here are some great quotes to share as well as some patriotic songs to sing.

There certainly is….. and it is called ‘O Canada’. There’s the national anthem too . Both are below.

1) 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.

2) 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!
And stand on guard, O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee.

Refrain
O Canada, glorious and free!
We stand on guard, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!

Refrain
O Canada, glorious and free! etc.

O Canada! Beneth thy shining skies
May stalwart sons and gentle maidens rise,
To keep thee steadfast through the years
From East to Western Sea,
Our own beloved native land!
Our True North, strong and free!

Refrain
O Canada, glorious and free! etc.

Ruler supreme, who hearest humble prayer,
Hold our dominion within 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.

 Happy Canada Day and Happy 150th Birthday Canada
