Un Canadien Errant


This lists any discs, concerts or collections where this piece is included.




Un Canadien errant, banni de ses foyers,

Parcourait en pleurant des pays étrangers.

Un jour, tiste et pesif, assis u bord des flots,

Au courant fugitif il addressa ces mots:

“Si tu vois mon pays, mon pays malheureux,

Va, dis à mes amis que je me souviens d’eux.

Non mais en expirant, O mon cher Canada!

Mon regard languissant vers toi se portera…”


A wandering Canadian, banished from his country,

travelled, while mourning, in foreign lands.

One day, sad and pensive, sitting on a riverbank,

he addressed these words to the passing waters:

“If you see my country, my unfortunate country,

go and tell my freinds that I remember them.

And that even as I die, my dearest Canada,

I shall forever long to see you again.”–
