“Washington, My Home”

Written by Helen Davis

Arranged by Stuart Churchill


This is my country; God gave it to me;

I will protect it, ever keep it free.

Small towns and cities rest here in the sun,

Filled with our laughter, “Thy will be done.”


Washington my home;

Where ever I may roam;

This is my land, my native land,

Washington, my home.

Our verdant forest green,

Caressed by silvery stream;

From mountain peak to fields of wheat.

Washington, my home.


There’s peace you feel and understand

In this, our own beloved land.

We greet the day with head held high,

And forward ever is our cry.

We’ll happy ever be

As people always free.

For you and me a destiny;

Washington my home.
