Oh come to the land and to the water of the earth

Come to the forests and the lakes of Algonquin

Come to the tamaracks and Canada Jay


Oh come to the rivers of the St. Lawrence Seaway

Come to the channels of the Georgian Bay

For all of the forests are a part of the planet

All of the water with life in her hands.


Bring all your love of the earth and water

Bring all your love of this generous land


Oh come with singing, come with calling

Come with greeting the earth and the sky

Come with singing, come with greeting

all of the forest belongs to the earth

all of the water has given us birth.


Oh come to the land and to the grasslands and prairies of sunshine

Come where the meadowlark is singing a song

Come to the foothills and peaks of the Rockies

Come with the Golden Eagle flying along


Come to the forests of the redwood giants

Come to the tundra higher than trees

Come with your cares of the world all around us

Come give your cares to the morning breeze.


Oh come to the coastline, the rugged, rugged coastline

Come where the waves beat hard from the sea

Come to the ocean, the mighty, mighty ocean

Come where the waves beat hard from the sea


Come to the glaciers that carry our secrets

Come with the light in an endless dome

Come to the land that holds all our longing

Come with the wind that carries us home.


Come with singing, come with calling

Come with greeting the earth and the sky

Come with singing, come with greeting

All of this beauty belongs to the earth

All of the majesty has given us birth


All of the beauty belongs to the earth

All of the majesty has given us birth

Given to all - all the earth

Given to us all.
