Lyrics – Canadian national anthem:

Ô Canada! Terre de nos aïeux,

Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!

Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,

Il sait porter la croix!

Ton histoire est une épopée

Des plus brillants exploits.

God keep our land glorious and free!

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

Lyrics – American national anthem:

Oh, say can you see

By the dawn’s early light

What so proudly we hailed

At the twilight’s last gleaming

Whose broad stripes and bright stars

Thru the perilous fight

O’er the ramparts we watched

Were so gallantly streaming

And the rocket’s red glare,

The bombs bursting in air

Gave proof through the night

That our flag was still there

Oh, say does that

Star-spangled banner yet wave

O’er the land of the free

And the home of the brave
