O’Canada
O’Canada! Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command
With glowing hearts we see thee rise
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide, O’Canada,
We stand on guard for thee.
Good keep our land glorious and free!
O’Canada, we stand on guard for thee
O’Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
Kin Song & Grace
Here we are, together once again,
One and all a happy bunch of Kin;
Leave your cares and troubles for a while
Let your face break forth in smile!
Look around, grab someone by the hand,
They’re your friends, the finest in the land
Now, all set, let’s shout to beat the band.
KINSMEN! KINETTES & KIN!
Happy to meet. Sorry to part.
Happy to meet again.
May the Lord make us true Kin
In our thoughts and deeds
And make us truly grateful
For the food we receive.
AMEN.
