finlandia lyrics – joan baez

this is my song, o god of all the nations
a song of peace, for lands afar & 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

my country’s skies are bluer than the ocean
and sunlight beams on clover leaf and pine
but other lands have sunlight too, and clover
and skies are everywhere as blue as mine
o hear my song, thou god of all the nations
a song of peace for their land and for mine

/ joan baez lyrics
