This is My Song
Tune John Sibelieus "Finlandia Words by Lloyd Stone
Courtesy of "A Chorus of Two As It Were So To Speak"

This is my song oh God of all the nations.
A son of peace for lands afar and mine.
This is my land 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, thou God of all the nations,
A song of peace for all lands and for mine.

The two ladies who call themselves A Chorus of Two also sing a song called Sae Will We Yet, which can lift your spirits, especially if you're lifting spirits when you sing it.
