Songs of the Makers of Canada
Invocation to Lore


Now while I praise my country's noblest train,
Bold Cartier, unbaffled by the seas,
Intrepid Champlain, Laval, Frontenac- and these:
Brave Wolfe and Brock, and Drummond of Lundy's Lane;

Those, too, who bound strange races in one cause
And reared a great Dominion ruled by genial laws,
O Patriot Love, Inspire me and sustain!

Guide my coarse lingers o'er my lute,
Their harshest harmonies transmute
To mellow music, and prolong
The unageing burden of my song!
