French Lyrics

G D7  Em  D  G  D  G   C D 
Ô Canada! Terre de nos aïeux,

G   A         D     Em D        A7   D 
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!

D7                          G 
Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,

D7 C    G  C   A7 D 
Il sait porter la croix!

D7                      G 
Ton histoire est une épopée 

A7  D        A7      D 
Des plus brillants exploits.

G  D    Em    Am C       D 
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,

G  B7  C  Am  G  Am  G  D   G 
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

   B+  C  Am  G  Am  G  D7  G 
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
