Canada Song

Aaron A. Lehman

July 1, 2017

 

From peaks of the mountains to Newfoundland’s shore

The spirit of the river flows over the land

Bringing fresh water for body and soul

The spirit of the river flows over the land

 

From across this land farmers harvest in kind

Through flooding and drought, good harvest or bad

Food for family and some for the world

The spirit of the river flows over the land

 

From mixed wood of forests, to oil fields beyond

Canadians working through boom times or bust

Products for all and some for export

The spirit of the river flows over the land

 

From city to city with condos and malls

Meeting needs of the people, their families and friends

With time for the artists and all the sports fans

The spirit of the river flows over the land

 

 

From time before settlers, First Nations are strong

Keeping their culture when no one else cared

A history and pride for all to see

The spirit of the river flows over the land

 

 

From mountain parks to ocean sand

Scenery and fun for all to enjoy

Friendly people enriching the world

The spirit of the river flows over the land

 

 

Chorus:

Come join us and celebrate these lands

First nations and settlers should join our hands

We will make a proud nation

Strong and free, Oh Canada
