Lyrics for "My people, My home" and the Recollections

My People, My Home

Who are you, my country?
More than celebrations and tears
More than memories put together
Or the summing up of years

I see you enduring all weathers
Sunshine and storms at your heart
In your face the lines ever changing
Tell the story where I have a part

[Chorus]
You, My people, My home
Our lives defend and uphold
May the good we achieve as one nation
Be shared with the world

As a new chapter begins
From where we have come thus far
Once again may it be written
You are who we are

In you may we see ourselves
Your needs your strength in us
That the work for freedom and peace
Is mine as much as ours

[Chorus] x2
You, My people, My home
Our lives defend and uphold
May the good we achieve as one nation
Be shared with the world

May the good we achieve as one nation
Be shared with the world

Recollections

Note: Memorise the 3 responses only.

"..but their hopes for a better lives were lost,
when war and invasion came."
Response:
They had no right, they had no say and they longed to be free one day.

"..but even friends disagree sometimes,
and more trouble had soon begun."
Response:
Our happiness was not to be, until our country could be free.

"..but let's not take it for granted,
what we have will always be."
Response:
We pledge to keep our nation free, with justice and equality.
