“My Country,” Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 224
1. This is my country! I sing it with pride
Whether it’s desert sand duned and wide,
Mountains with pine trees, land iceberg bound.
It’s here where my home and my loved ones are found.
2. This is my country, and all that I do
Should make it mighty, noble, and true.
I love my country. Long may it be
A land where my people are honest and free.
