"This Is My Song"[1] is a 1934 hymn written by Lloyd Stone (1912-1993) using the Finlandia Hymn melody composed by Jean Sibelius. It often appears in hymnals with substituted and additional verses by Georgia Harkness (1891-1974).

It is sometimes called "A Song of Peace" which is taken from the second line of the song.[1][2]

Lyrics[edit]

This is my song, a song for all the nations,

A song of peace for lands a far and mine.

This is my home, the country where my heart is;

Here are my hopes, my dreams, my holy shrine.

But other hearts in other lands are beating,

With hopes and dreams as true and high as mine.
