I was born long ago in the mountains out east
My spirit remains there today
From Irish, Scot, and English blue blood,
Throw in a dab of Native American and German-Jew
Ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War from
The States of New Hampshire and Massachusetts
Noah wrote a well-known dictionary, I declare
Daniel was quite the orator and statesman
Old John was the first governor of Connecticut
That’s the wrap-up of the forefathers.
Recent history brought in some Swiss ties
My kids are thoroughly peopled with strong genes
An Irish blessing to you, and a good cuppa of English tea
A Scottish shortbread cookie and good German bratwurst
Delicious Swiss chocolate and strong Algonquin courage . . .
But the important part. . . I am blessed with God’s everlasting salvation and grace.
I AM A CHILD OF THE KING!
