Songs of the Makers of Canada
Wolfe: Illustrious Victor


Destroyed the Old Regime, 1759.)

Immortal hero, Wolfe, too oft we laud
Thy deeds to whet our British vanity,
Tho deeper ken shows through thy victory
The all o'er-ruliug providence of Cod.
Not England conquered; but the Holy Pow'r,
Whose purposes were wiser than we dream,
Had planned to generate a new regime
And made thy victory its travail hour.

A grateful people, Hero, still to course
Adown the lengthening slopes of time shall praise
Thy prowess and thy death in lofty lays;
And should they also sing a mightier
Force Than England's arms, illustrious
Victor! know Thy tame is sure while aeons come and go!
