GLORIOUS and FREE

a poem by Elizabeth Gaye Trondsen, Canada

God keep our land.
Glorious and free.

God keep our land.
Free from persecution and enmity.

God keep our land.
Beautiful and preserved.
From sea to sea.

God keep our wonderful Canada.
Our nation of freedom, wide open
spaces, and diversity.
Our nation of nature's bounty.
And folks so friendly.

God keep our land.
A welcoming refuge for
peoples oppressed.

God keep our land.
Glorious and free.
God keep our wonderful Canada.
Oh, what a privilege it is
to be a citizen of thee!
I am filled with gratitude.
To be a dweller of this great country.

God keep our land, O Lord.
Glorious.
And.
Free.

---a late tribute to Canada's 150th birthday celebration on July 1, 2017.
