My favorite songs – Christian addendum

Today, a video occurred to me that I left out of my fav christian songs post.

I love this song “Goodly Heritage” since my sister first read me the lyrics. My siblings were gonna sing it and record it for me to use in the music video for my parents 50th anniversary dinner. but we decided instead to just have me do a video from my sister’s Goodly Heritage CD. (I believe we even got permission since she knows them)
my sister said there was no way she could sing it without crying. (I think this was the video that made my brother “mr. tough guy” cry at the anniversary.)

This song fits my parents so perfectly. I really do have a goodly heritage. my parents weren’t/aren’t perfect because they’re godly not God. But when I heard this song, I thought “how do they know Mom & Dad?”  the answer is clear, it’s because they have similar parents.

I rewatched my video today and it made me tear up. Probably because of Daddy being Home (with a capital H), and because I’m now a grand-aunt and I know the importance of passing on that goodly heritage.

This link goes to a video of my family. If you know my last name, you can watch the video. http://wp.me/pIXIq-lR

In the meantime, here is an acapella version of just the song.

 

Here are the lyrics:

I may not have riches as some others may
But I have a mother who knows how to pray
There may be some things I’ve missed in my youth
But I have a father who stands for the truth

Chorus:

I have a goodly heritage
I’m blessed with things you can’t see
I have a goodly heritage
And that is worth far more to me

And if in the future, my parents pass on,
To dwell in that City, we’ve come to call Home
They may not leave me the wealth of this world
But I will inherit their God and His Word

Chorus

When problems plague you and troubles rage on.
just look at your children who’ll bear your name on.
Someday they’ll walk down the same path you’re on
and they’ll need a witness that his grace is strong.

They need a goodly heritage.
they’ll look at you and press on
they’ll say my folks stay faithful.
in that strength they can carry on

I have a goodly heritage
I want for them the same thing.
I have a goodly heritage
that’s something worth passing on.

now, that’s something worth passing on.
