I have a Goodly Heritage

Yesterday was the anniversary of my dad’s Homegoing. (He died October 24th – so he went Home (to Heaven).)
So today, I was thinking of him and by extension, Mom.
This song came to mind and I started singing it (badly). And then I watched the video I did for my parent’s 50th anniversary.
I’ve posted about this before, but it’s still a favorite.

Goodly Heritage (possibly written by Leah Sandlin)

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

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

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


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 stayed 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

as I said, I did a music video of it and if you know my last name, you can watch it here.

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