Sounds of Home – Land

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the April 13th edition of Sounds of Home!

This is My Song

This is my song, O God of all the nations,
a song of peace for lands afar and mine.
This is my home, the country where my heart is,
here are my hopes, my dreams, my holy shrine;
but other hearts in other lands are beating
with hopes and dreams as true and high as mine.

My country’s skies are bluer than the ocean,
and sunlight beams on cloverleaf and pine.
But other lands have sunlight too, and clover,
and skies are ev’rywhere as as blue as mine.
So hear my song, O God of all the nations,
a song of peace for their land and for mine.

Text: Lloyd Stone
Music: Jean Sibelius
