I found this rather by accident while searching for a good version of “This is my song” with the following lyrics.
- This is my song, Oh 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 sacred 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 everywhere as blue as mine.
- Oh hear my song, oh God of all the nations,
- A song of peace for their land and for mine.
Being that I love boys’ choral music I was then swept away into youtube music ecstasy and spent way way too much time listening to the various pieces. So I thought I would share the joy.
