Mother of the Land

she is a mother…. who so love the world

she gave it all….her pure heart of gold

she is an angel… from heaven’s a God sen

tshe teaches us to kneel…in prayers so fervent

with a heart so soft…and so tender

she willed to suffer…without surrender

a strength of her soul…upon her weariness

a bounty spirit…born with the ruggedness

she stood in a vow…of patience and pity

she stood all…for the love of humanity

she stood to give…love and tranquility

she stood all…for the worlds serenity

mother in heart of gold…in ovation, we rise and salute

for all her deeds done…we praised with great resolute

your sacrifices looked upon…as love so grand

we bow down to our knees…your reverence, mother of the land
