O Chanada, dùthaich nan gaisgeach còir
Crùn air do cheann
De dhuilleig dheirg is òir;

Bho chuan gu cuan le òran binn
Do chliù nì sinn a’ luaidh;

Fo dhion do sgéith tha saorsa ghrinn
Nach spìon an nàmhaid uainn;

O Chanada, dùrachd ar crìdh’
Sonas le sìth is maitheas Dhé d’ar tìr,
Sonas le sìth is maitheas Dhé d’ar tìr!
