This Land is His Land
We have heard this song so many times:
“This land is your land, this land is mine”;
Was it made by our hand?
Are the green pastures and the hills ours?
Do we send sunshine, rain, and flowers?
Friend, this land is His land.
The One who created all we see
And sent forth His Son to set us free
Has a wonderful plan.
He is in control of everything,
The land, the sea, winter, fall, and spring…
Yes, this land is His land.
He hung the moon and stars into space,
Came to this earth to die in our place…
We are saved by His hand.
How could we ever claim anything?
It all belongs to Jesus, our King…
This Land is His Land.
“The mighty God, even the Lord hath spoken…”
“Every beast of the forest is mine,
and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
I know all the fowls of the mountains;
and the wild beasts of the field are mine.
If I were hungry, I would not tell thee:
for the world is mine, and the fullness thereof.”
(Ps 50:1, 10-12)
