The Sons And The Daughters

Track Number:

Lyrics: 

(John Farrell/ Hope River Music)

We are the sons and the daughters
of the sons and the daughters
Of hope and fear, of joy and pain
Blown by the wind, tossed on the waters
Blessed by the sun and the rain

Kate and Thomas left from Ireland in 1864
Leaving family and the only life they’d known
Trading hunger for a promise
And sadness for a dream
The family tree they planted keeps on growing
(Chorus)

Anna crossed the great wide ocean
all alone at age sixteen
Not knowing if she ever would return
She didn’t speak their language,
she couldn’t write or read
But her faith and courage helped her
as she learned
( Chorus)
