"The Island Hymn" is the patriotic song of the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island. It was first conceived early in 1908 by Professor Harry Watts of the Charlottetown School of Music who at the suggestion of Rev. Dr. Thomas Fullerton, contacted Island author and poet Lucy Maud Montgomery asking if she would compose the hymn's lyrics, which she wrote in 1908. A stanza from the "Hymn" was performed for the first time in public on May 22 of that year at a combined school event marking both Arbor Day and Empire Day. Written to the metre of God Save the King, it was sung to Lawrence W. Watson's music, which had been composed especially for her lyric at the request of Professor Watts. The full piece was not performed until school closing exercises the following June 29th, as Watts recalled, that the "Hymn" was first sung in its entirety.
