Land of the silver birch,
Home of the beaver
Where still the mighty moose
Wanders at will.

Blue Lake and Rocky shore
I will return once more

Down in the forest
Deep in the lowlands
My heart cries out for thee
Hills of the North.

High on a rocky ledge,
I’ll build a wigwam close
By the water’s edge,
Silent and still.
