I love you Canada!

English Lyrics:
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. 

French lyrics:
Ô Canada!
Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!
Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,
Il sait porter la croix!
Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brillants exploits.
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.  

For more info on Canada's National Anthem and to hear the song, check out the Canadian Heritage site. You can get a copy of the sheet music there.  If you want to see what Canadians are doing today check out La Fete du Canada Day - by the way, that's where you'll find Prince William and Kate celebrating too!
