Independence Day Tribute: "This Is My Song"



https://youtu.be/6OxSYe8_e4Y

THIS IS MY SONG (lyrics provided by art101.com) 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 clover-leaf and pine. But other lands have sunlight too and clover, And skies are everywhere as blue as mine. Oh, hear my song, O God of all the nations, A song of peace for their land and for mine. My country, 'tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty, Of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgrims' pride, From every mountainside, A song of peace. Music: "Finlandia" by Jean Sibelius (1865-1957) Words by Lloyd Stone (1912- )
