Faithful Steady Line

by Gretchen Sleicher


Lyrics


I’ve been watching that line of mountains all my life
So much has changed
Yet that line remains
A faithful steady line
That tells me I belong
And holds me in my sweet Cascadia home

We've been watching this blue-green planet all our lives
So much has changed
Yet our line remains
An unbroken chain of survivors
That tells us we are strong
And rooted in our sweet planet home

If we knew we belonged here like the birds and forests do
That our place is amongst and not above
We would treasure, not destroy life, as our peoples often do
We would naturally celebrate and love
This faithful steady line
The unbroken chain of survivors
On whose shoulders we all stand
Rooted in our sweet planet home
Held here on our sweet planet home

I’ve been watching that line of mountains all my life
So much has changed
Yet that line remains
A faithful steady line
That tells me I belong
And holds me in my sweet Cascadia home
Holds me in my sweet planet home
