Fall foliage on a curvy road

“An American Hymn” by Placido Domingo

“This was my Mom’s favorite song. It brought her serenity and comfort. It represented her faith that one day she would be free from life’s pain and find peace by “going home” to be with God.” – Michelle Franck

I have seen a summer day

that slowly opens like a rose
along a quiet road that wanders by
And I have smiled and wonder’d
Where it goes

I have stumbled through the night
Alone as any man can be
Then found a silent canyon full of stars
And in my heart I heard them telling me
I was home

The gentle winds, the rains that fall
The tallest trees, and I’m part of it all

I’ve seen the silver mountain tops
And golden prairies on my way
Now everywhere I go across the land
I stand so proudly in the sun and say
I am home

I’ve dreamed of eden all my life
I find it more and more each day
Now everywhere I go across the land
I stand so proudly in the sun and say
I am home
