A Song of Peace for Their Land and For Mine


At an interfaith service for peace at a time of war, I heard this beautiful song, which I wanted to share with those of you who visit this website.  The song was written by Lloyd Stone in 1934, and is sung to the tune of “Finlandia.”  It is from the New Century Hymnal, Copyright 1995 by The Pilgrim Press.


This is my song, O 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 holy shrine;
But other hearts in other lands are beating
with hopes and dreams as true and high as mine.
