Canada the City Golden

Canada the City golden
The promised New Jerusalem
Envisioned long ago by prophets wise
Borne from skies in silence Holy
Monument to Peace Eternal
Her borders smile from Sea to Sea
All glorious not made with hands 
Already great, yet greater great
Her future as a Nation blest
With true Peace Everlasting crowned.

Canada the city golden
The New Jerusalem we love
Bride of unsurpassing beauty
Waiting on her Lord and Master
Come to rule His Kingdom on Earth.
Wherein through Dek-ana-wida
Father of the United Nations
The gift of peace to Man was made
Which same like heaven will yet raise
World Nations into Lasting Peace.
