O Canada – Song for Climate Justice

O Canada we’ve all agreed to
Stand for the true north strong and free
With glowing hearts from sea to sea
We stand on guard for thee

O Canada on Native land
We wash the oil from tar and sand
From pipe to power this darkest hour
From sea to shining sea

But who stands watch for the earth below
Stands for the ice and the melting snow
Who for the land to call our home
O Canada I don’t know

O Canada with fossil soil
We frack the gas and mine the coal
For carbon power this darkest hour
From sea to shining sea

But Who looks out for the prairie sky
Stands for the air so none of us die
Who for wind and the birds that fly
Where the planet goes there  go I

O Canada from forest green
We ship the logs and cut the trees
And there for the river that meets the sea
With mud and logging debris

O Canada  O Canada

Who stands watch from sea to sea
Who for a lost democracy
Who for the true north strong and free
If not you – then let it be me
