This Land Is Your Land (revised with a Christian message)

(revisions by Laura Chambers)

Chorus:

This land is Your land, created by Your hand

So that we could stand, and make this claim

That from the biggest cities, to the tiniest villages

This land was made to praise Your name

As I was walking, alone and confused

Feeling dejected, feeling abused

I looked to the heavens, and what did I see

This land was made to praise Your name

Chorus

I've looked for answers, and I've found only questions

Until You came, into my life

Now and forever, I know the truth is this

This land was made to praise Your name

Chorus

The sun's much brighter, my heart is lighter

Everything seems newer, and I know just why

I've had a revelation, and it's astounding

This land was made to praise Your name

Chorus

I can see clearer, I understand more

My spirits soaring, 'cause I am hopeful

I prayed fervently, and that's the way it should be

This land was made to praise Your name

Chorus

I'll never leave You, now that I've found you

It'd be the worst thing, a man could ever do

Though many deny it, I wouldn't dare try it

This land was made to praise Your name

Chorus
