A hundred years have passed,
The changes now are coming fast
Progress calling for a new breed to come forth
The visions and the dreams
Fulfilled by men and his machines
As a breath of promise blows across the north.
O Canada, look north and see
The sleeping giant breaking free
Come help us make our dream a reality
We need your mind, your hand, and your heart
Your willingness to play a part
In the shaping of your Northlandís destiny.
Man of vision firmly stand
To face the challenge of the land
Weíve learned to walk where once we had to crawl
And the promise of tomorrow is no hardship and no sorrow
For the land is surely rich enough for all.
And they came from all around
Walked upon the frozen ground
The secrets of the silent land to know
There is magic is this land thatís hard to understand
Grips the hearts of men and never letís them go.
