New take on an old favourite
Regarding the movement to change a line in O Canada, the literature or poetry world is different.
If explored more, you feel you can make some change to come up with the correct message and a clear understanding.
The suggestion for Canada’s national anthem is to change the line “in all thy sons command” to “in all us command.” If this makes the concept clear and more meaningful without harming the lyrics of O Canada, then I have no objection. It is acceptable.
The patriotic song is sung with pride by many Canadians, therefore tone and tune should be remain sweet and in lyric order.
