"...God keep our land"

A line from Canada's national anthem. O Canada was written by Calixa Lavallée in 1880 and became Canada's official national anthem on its 100th anniversary in 1980.

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all of us 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.
