THIS IS MY HOME

This rousing Canadian anthem has been heard far and wide on radio and television, at ceremonies, sports arenas and special events. It was premiered at the World Exposition (Vancouver) in 1986. It’s been called the second Canadian National Anthem. With Canada’s 150th anniversary approaching this would be a perfect choice for any choir to celebrate the wonderful country we call home and all it has to offer.

From sea to sea a tapestry of colour, shapes and sounds
We’re a people bound together by the visions we have found
From place to place, face to face, we share this common bond
It’s a feeling lying deep within where only dreams belong

It’s here where you realize the heart and home are one.
Canada, O Canada, we’re you’re daughter’s we’re your sons.

This is my home oh Canada
This is my home oh Canada oh Canada

Je découvre avec émoi des splendeurs et des coeurs
Des façons de vivre et des pouvoirs créateurs
Et quand on partage un rêve on va beaucoup plus loin
Viens plus loin, prends ma main, tout un pays se rejoint.

This is my home oh Canada
This is my home oh Canada oh Canada
On est chez nous au Canada
Chez nous partout au Canada oh Canada
This is my home

O Canada, this is my home oh Canada
Chez nous partout au Canada oh Canada
On est chez nous au Canada
This is my home oh Canada oh Canada
This is my home.

lyrics – Brian Gibson
