Long time ago when I was young
We had great songs that could be sung
About our nation and our lives
And thousands over time survives.
These words of courage carry on
With impact of the clarion
They sing of life and love and care
Of hope and joy, grief and despair.
Let’s lend our voice to all we feel
Because our sentiment is real
Like all the verses we have heard
Repeat to us God’s promised word !
