The Canadian Soldiers' Song Book/The Maple Leaf Forever
4—THE MAPLE LEAF FOREVER
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 King and Heaven bless the Maple Leaf forever.
