America, Our Heritage Saturday, July 4th, 2009 America, Our Heritage is my favorite patriotic hymn. I learned it as a fifth grader and we sang it throughout the year in our classroom. The words are below; the tune is on YouTube: I do not know the author or composer, so if anyone knows, please send me the credit info. Thanks. America, Our Heritage High towering mountains, fields gold with grain, Rich, fertile farmlands, flocks on the plain, Homes blessed with peace, with love, without fears; This is the heritage we’ve kept through the years. Wide rolling prairies, lakes deep and broad, Canyons majestic, fashioned by God, Life lived in peace, contented and free: This is the heritage forever to be. Stout hearts and true hold fast what is ours God give us courage through darkest hours. God give us strength and guide with thy hand America, our heritage, our homeland.
