" From the lone shielding of the misty island
Mountains divide us, and a waste of seas,
Yet still the blood is warm, the heart is Highland,
And we in dreams behold the Hebrides."
" This Canada shall be
The worthy heir of British power and British liberty,
Spreading the blessings of her sway to her remotest bounds."

" See men to the battlefield pressing, To conquer one foe-the stern soil,
Their kingship in labour expressing,
Their lordship in toil."

Our thoughts as boundless, and our souls as free,
Far as the breeze can bear, the billows foam,,
Survey our Empire, and behold our home."
