Happy Birthday, dearest Canada!

Best wishes we send you.

May our great nation honor God;

May you be strong and true.

May all God’s people in this land

Get on their knees to pray,

Repent from all their wickedness

Walk on the narrow way.

Each choose to do what’s true and right,

Be honest, humble all their days.

Then God will surely hear from heaven

And heal this Land; bless you always.

And may all those who still don’t know Him

Have their eyes opened so that they can see

Almighty God, through His Son Jesus Christ,

Extends to everyone Salvation, full and free!

We love our Land, our cherished home;

Our precious freedoms – every one.

May all your children give God thanks

When all is said and done!

Karin Ristau
