ODE TO NEWFOUNDLAND

 

When sunrays crown thy pine-clad hills,
And summer spreads her hand
When silvern voices tune thy rills
We love thee smiling land
We love thee, we love thee,
We love thee smiling land.

When blinding storm gusts fret thy shore
And wild waves lash thy strand
Thro' sprindrift swirl and tempest roar
We love thee wind-swept land
We love thee, we love thee
We love thee wind-swept land.

When spreads thy cloak of shimm'ring white
At Winter's stern command
Thro' shortened day and starlit night
We love thee frozen land
We love thee, we love thee
We love thee frozen land.

As loved our fathers so we love
Where once they stood, we stand
Their prayer we raise to heav'n above
God guard thee, Newfoundland
God guard thee, Newfoundland
God guard thee, Newfoundland
