National Anthem

“O Canada! Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all of us command,

Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,
Il sait porter la croix!

Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brillants exploits,

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee”.

1880, Calixa Lavallée

Act of Remembrance

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn;

At the going down of the sun and in the morning;

We will remember them;

We will remember them”

From the poem “For the Fallen”, 1914,

Robert Laurence Binyon

 

 

Abide With Me (verses 1 and 5)

“Abide with me; Fast fallsthe eventide;

The darkness deepens Lord with me abide,

When other helpers fail and comforts flee,

Help of the helpless; O Lord, abide with me.

 

Hold thou thy cross before my closing eyes,

Shine thru the gloom and point me to the skies;

Heavens morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee,

In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.”

1847, Henry Frances Lyle

to the tune “Eventide” composed by William Henry Monk.

Invocation

 

 

In Flanders Fields

“In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
   The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie

   In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
   The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

   In Flanders fields.”

1915, Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae

 

 

Closing Prayer

 

 

The Royal Anthem

“God save our gracious Queen,

Long love our noble queen,

God save the Queen.

Send her victorious,

Happy and glorious,

Long to reign over us,

God save the queen.”

1745, Anonymous
