By Alexander Muir, 1867

In days of yore, from Britain's shore
Wolfe, the dauntless hero came
And planted firm Britannia's flag
On Canada's fair domain!
Here may it wave, our boast, our pride
And joined in love together
The Thistle, Shamrock, Rose entwine
The Maple Leaf forever!

The Maple Leaf, our emblem dear
The Maple Leaf forever!
God Save our Queen and Heaven Bless
The Maple Leaf forever!

At Queenston Heights and Lundy's Lane
Our brave fathers, side by side
For freedom, homes, and loved ones dear
Firmly stood, and nobly died.
And those dear rights, which they maintained
We swear to yield them never!
Our watchword evermore shall be
"The Maple Leaf Forever"!

Our fair Dominion now extends
From Cape Race to Nootka Sound
May peace forever be our lot
And plenteous store abound.
And may those ties of love be ours
Which discord cannot sever
And flourish green o'er Freedom's home
The Maple Leaf Forever!

On merry England's far-famed land
May kind Heaven sweetly smile
God bless Old Scotland evermore
And Ireland's Emerald Isle!
Then swell the song, both loud and long
Till rocks and forests quiver
God save our Queen and Heaven Bless
The Maple Leaf forever!
