Because you are part and maker of history
There is nothing here that is not a part and maker of you,
Nothing that will not pursue you through the years
As these four hundred years pursued you to the present.
This is your legacy to cherish, to gather strength from
For the present and hope for the future as a Christian people.
The responsibility is yours whether to bury this legacy
In the past, or live with it to sustain you through all the
Four hundred years and more to come.
For as long as man can remember
This is a land where the lifeway
Is woven with the concept of God.
