SANCTUARY

This land
that holds us
all of us
with our houses
and churches
our monuments
our cathedrals
and our trees
our pride
and humility

This land that
first welcomed
our forefathers
and their neighbors
with all they brought along
their sorrows
their dreams
and ambitions

This land we’re treading on
its story must be told
and never forgotten
it must be honored
and be treasured

This land today
our heritage
our compass
the golden prize
the beacon of hope
for many beyond our shores

This land is sanctuary.
