LYRICS

Oh come to the land and to the water of the earth
Come to the forests and the lakes of Algonquin
Come to the tamaracks and Canada Jay

Oh come to the rivers of the St. Lawrence Seaway
Come to the channels of the Georgian Bay
For all of the forests are a part of the planet
All of the water with life in her hands.

Bring all your love of the earth and water
Bring all your love of this generous land

Oh come with singing, come with calling
Come with greeting the earth and the sky
Come with singing, come with greeting
all of the forest belongs to the earth
all of the water has given us birth.

Oh come to the land and to the grasslands and prairies of sunshine
Come where the meadowlark is singing a song
Come to the foothills and peaks of the Rockies
Come with the Golden Eagle flying along

Come to the forests of the redwood giants
Come to the tundra higher than trees
Come with your cares of the world all around us
Come give your cares to the morning breeze.

Oh come to the coastline, the rugged, rugged coastline
Come where the waves beat hard from the sea
Come to the ocean, the mighty, mighty ocean
Come where the waves beat hard from the sea

Come to the glaciers that carry our secrets
Come with the light in an endless dome
Come to the land that holds all our longing
Come with the wind that carries us home.

Come with singing, come with calling
Come with greeting the earth and the sky
Come with singing, come with greeting
All of this beauty belongs to the earth
All of the majesty has given us birth

All of the beauty belongs to the earth
All of the majesty has given us birth
Given to all – all the earth
Given to us all.
