Canada's Welcome

 Next Poem          

A nation's hearty welcome take,
Heir to a mighty throne;
Thrice welcome! for old England's sake,
Thy mother's, and thine own.

From crowded street, from hillside green,
From fair Canadian vales,
The prayer goes up--God bless the Queen!
God bless the Prince of Wales!

The rich and poor, the great and small
Their voices join as one;
Victoria's name is dear to all,
So is Victoria's Son.

Their tribute other queens have laid
Upon the land and sea;
But never earthly monarch swayed
So many hearts as she.

And for her young and gallant heir
A kindred love prevails;
God hear a nation's fervent prayer!
God bless the Prince of Wales!
