An American Hymn

My daughter was in the HISD Honor Choir this year.  They performed this piece.  This isn't her choir.  Also it's a bit Pantheistic, but it is well done, nonetheless.



The words are by Molly Ann Leikin.  Music by Lee Holdridge.  Here are the lyrics:
An American Hymn

I have seen a summer day
that slowly opens like a rose
along a quiet road that wanders by
And I have smiled and wonder'd
Where it goes.

I have stumbled through the night
Alone as any man can be
Then found a silent canyon full of stars
And in my heart I heard them telling me
I was home.


The gentle winds, the rains that fall
The tallest trees, and I'm part of it all
I've seen the silver mountain tops
And golden prairies on my way
Now everywhere I go across the land
I stand so proudly in the sun and say
I am home.

I've dreamed of eden all my life
I find it more and more each day
Now everywhere I go across the land
I stand so proudly in the sun and say
I am home.
