Songs of the Makers of Canada
Macdonald: Great Confederationist


(First Premier of the Dominion of Canada, 1867.)

Macdonald, tho thy soul hath passed away
From wonted wolds in our Canadian land,
Where thou wast chiefest of the fervid band
That sought to give the people fullest sway
O'er their own destiny, thy spirit goes
Triumphant m this Canada of ours
Resplendent now before the elder Pow'rs
Who mark how virile our young nation grows!

Thy wisdom was the vision of a seer
Who knew the meaning of the pregnant days
Which gen'rous Time should father into ways
For unity. To as thy name is dear
Who brought forth from the womb of dissonance
This great Dominion's best inheritance.
