National Pledge

There is no official pledge to the Canadian flag, however, here is a version proposed by Alexandre Cyr, when he was M.P. for Gaspé.
To my Flag and to the country it represents, I pledge RESPECT and LOYALTY.
Wave with PRIDE from sea to sea and within your folds, keep us ever UNITED.
Be for all a symbol of LOVE, FREEDOM and JUSTICE
God keep our FLAG
God protect our CANADA
À mon drapeau et au pays qu'il représente, je promets RESPECT et FIDÉLITÉ.
D'une mer à l'autre, flotte avec FIERTÉ et dans tes plis garde nous toujours UNIS.
Sois, pour nous tous, un symbole de l'AMOUR, de la LIBERTÉ et de la JUSTICE
Dieu garde notre DRAPEAU
Dieu protège notre CANADA

National Anthem

English lyrics by Justice Robert Stanley Wier, French lyrics by Judge Aldolphe-Basile Routhier music attributed to Calixa Lavalle, offically adopted 1980.
O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons 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.
O Canada!
Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!
Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,
Il sait porter la croix!
Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brillants exploits.
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
