My Country

Music from the Friend

“This is my country!” I sing it with pride:
Whether it’s desert, sand-duned and wide,
Mountains, pine covered land iceberg bound,
It’s where my home and loved ones are found.

This is my country; and all that I do
Should build it stronger, finer, more true;
I love my country. Long may it be
A land where my people are honest and free.
