Let Us Not Forget

Let us not forget the ancient wisdom
With which our ancestors walked their days
Let us carry on with great determination
With a grateful heart, to God we give the praise

Let us not forget the mountains they climbed
In the darkest valleys where they found light
Footprints are abundant down every path
All their yesterdays can be found in plain sight

Let us not forget the sound of their voice
In the distance, they are still calling us home
The place where many a prayer was heard
Shaping our tomorrows, until we were grown

Let us not forget the love that was given
 All under the same roof, each night at bed
The teachings of God’s word, from the bible
Food for our body and soul, we were always fed

Let us not forget the many sacrifices made
Working from sun up until sun down
The love of family, there is no boundaries
How proud we must be of them, so profound

Let us not forget the place, from which we came
May our hearts stay humble and proud
And listen to the wisdom of all the ages
Can you hear…. the echoes are calling so loud
