I’ve watched Canada’s national anthem several times at the olympics. Here are the lyrics for those of you who, like me, couldn’t quite catch all the words.

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.
