Strong & Free, We Stand On Guard For Thee

Corporal you are a hero strong and free,

You paid the ultimate price,

The nation stands on guard for thee,

To honour your sacrifice,

You had no idea it was this day,

Where you’d have to give your life,

And so you went on your way,

not expecting any strife.

Thinking of the things you’d say,

At supper that night with your wife,

But then a war was waged on you,

As you stood on guard,

You did what heroes do,

Even though it was so hard,

Your family must now say goodbye,

As the nation mourns along,

So brave hero who stood guard close by,

We honour you proudly with this song,

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.
