Canada Day 2009

One hundred and forty two candles,

 Make a lovely light,

Throughout our Home and Native land,

The dream’s still burning bright.


 A land where folks from many nations,

Could live in harmony,

Free from persecution,

Injustice, fear and tyranny.


We aint got it perfect yet,

In many ways we’ve just begun,

To heal the wounds of history,

As many peoples become one.


Happy Birthday Canada,

Fly the Maple Leaf unfurled

Keep the candles burning bright,

As a beacon to the world!
