Family Through The Ages

by Julie Turnbow Amateur

SONG LYRICS

Long ago they came. Far across the sea.
Leaving home and family.
Dreaming of a life. Beautiful and free.
Full of opportunities.
With their courage strong, they faced challenges so great.
I believe that they are watching me.

I see eyes of blue. I see hair with a golden hue.
I see mother by the fireside. I see father teaching truth.
I see love, I see hope.
I see faith and courage too.
Just your family through the ages blessing you.

I just love these stories. From so long ago.
People from my family tree.
Helping me to see. How life used to be.
Giving me the strength to carry on.
We all have connections. Linking to the past.
I believe that they are helping me.

I see eyes of blue. I see hair with a golden hue.
I see mother by the fireside. I see father teaching truth.
I see love, I see hope.
I see faith and courage too.
Just your family through the ages blessing you.

In my life of ease, I cannot forget.
Those who paved the way for me.

I see eyes of blue. I see hair with a golden hue.
I see mother by the fireside. I see father teaching truth.
I see love, I see hope.
I see faith and courage too.
Just your family through the ages blessing you.

Just your family through the ages blessing you.

DESCRIPTION
My ancestors probably thought their life was plain and ordinary, but I don't see it that way. I see them with courage and determination. Not afraid to leave everything behind in search of something better. Working so hard just to feed the family yet, they were happy and felt blessed. Having lost my husband a year and a half ago, I feel him near. Watching over me and protecting me. I know that those who have gone on still care about us and want to help us. We are connected to them more than we realize. I am beyond grateful for my 'Family Through the Ages.'
