Canadian version for treble choir (American version available upon request)
Thoughtful and provoking with tight harmonies, this is the perfect Remembrance Day anthem.

Talk of trouble is sent through the country
And we need an army
To fight for the right
Young men enlist and are sent to the battle
To fight the offender and help our allies

And the young men cry, *”Oh Canada,
We’ll gladly go and fight for thee.”
And the young men cry, “Oh Canada,
We’ll fight to keep you free.”

The battle’s raging
Gun fire is blazing
A tired young soldier is clinging to life
He’s ordered on
And obeys by advancing
No hope of returning from the enemy fire

And the soldier cries, “Oh Canada
If it must be so, I’ll die for thee.”
And the soldier cries, “Oh Canada
I’ll die to keep you free.”

Far away we have seen a great danger
And yet there’s a danger much greater within
The noise we make as we constantly bicker
Would hush not a whisper if we listen to hear…

All the thousands cry, “Oh Canada,
Is that why we have died for thee?”
And the soldiers cry, “Oh Canada,
We died to keep you free.”

And we all miss Oh Canada
The land where we all used to be
And we all are longing for Canada
The true north, strong and free

And the soldier cries, “Oh Canada,
be true and strong for me”.
