The Maple Leaf Forever Lyrics

In days of yore, from Britain’s shore,
Wolfe, the dauntless hero came,
And planted firm Brittania’s flag
On Canada’s fair domain.

Here may it wave, our boast, our pride,
And join’d in love together,
The Thistle Shamrock, Rose entwine,
The Maple Leaf Forever!

Chorus

The Maple Leaf, our emblem dear,
The Maple Leaf forever!
God save our King, and heaven bless
The Maple Leaf forever!

Second Verse

At Queenston Heights and Lundy’s Lane,
Our brave fathers, side by side,
For freedeom, homes, and lov’d one dear,
Firmly stood and nobly died;

And those dear rights which they maintain’d,
We sear to yield them never!
Our watch-word ever more shall be,
“The Maple Leaf Forever!”
