O Canada
Terre de nos aïeux
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux
Car ton bras sait porter l’épée
Il sait porter la croix

Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brillants exploits
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée

Protègera nos foyers et nos droits
Protègera nos foyers et nos droits
O Canada
Land of our ancestors
Your brow is girded with glorious jewels
Because your arm can hold the sword
He can carry the cross

Your story is an epic
The most brilliant exploits
And your value soaked faith

Will protect our homes and our rights
Will protect our homes and our rights
O Canada
Land of our ancestors
Glorious deeds circle your brow
For your arm knows how to wield the sword
Your arm knows how to carry the cross

Your history is an epic
Of brilliant deeds
And your valour steeped in faith
Will protect our homes and our rights
Will protect our homes and our rights
