What Canada Is

This song always makes me cry. I wish it was our national anthem.

We have love for our neighbour
Of whatever creed or colour
We have love for our cities
And our valleys and our plains
We have a voice that is calling
Telling all the world we’re willing
To welcome them to this great land
For that’s what Canada is.

We have faith in our future
We’re ready for tomorrow
We have faith in our children
For our future’s in their hands
We have a voice that is calling
Telling us to keep on hoping
For time will make this wild land great
And that’s what Canada is.

We have peace in our valleys
We’re happy and contented
We have peace in our cities
And our boundaries have no chains
We have a voice that is calling
Telling all free men we’re willing
To show them how to live in peace
For that’s what Canada is.

  1. Canada is one place I’ve always longed to visit…I wish the US were a more peaceful and less warring country…

  2. How pretty. When you said in your comment to Ms. Moon that there was a very hot summer there I was surprised…I never, ever thought that Canada got hot! Live and learn.

  3. God that is beautiful
    I was just in the airport here in the US and they’re selling these reticulum campaign crap already.
    Canada just may be “calling” us after all.

  4. I echo Martha’s comment! I’ve been to almost all the places in the video (and then some) and we really do have an amazing place to call home!
