Lyrics:

Sigfred made the pinewood skis
(Homemade and handed down)
Ella the box of recipes
(Homemade and handed down)
Lily was the child with flaxen hair
Twinkling eyes and smile so fair
She wore the pearl white wedding gown
(Homemade and handed down)
(Homemade and handed down)

Feather beds and eiderdown
(Homemade and handed down)
Winter comes without a sound
(Homemade and handed down)
Shining eyes on Christmas Eve
Singing in three-part harmony
Love unspoken, all around
(Homemade and handed down)
(Homemade and handed down)

The baby's empty rocking chair
(Homemade and handed down)
Lullabies and bedtime prayers
(Homemade and handed down)
Hard times come and the hard times go
The memories love me, this I know
Roots run deep in the old hometown
Homemade and handed down
Homemade and handed down

Amazing Grace was with us all along
In every on and everything we've come through
Time can't erase the treasure we pass on
The never-ending love that we come home to

Hopes and fortunes, lost and found
(Homemade and handed down)
A well-kept garden, rich and brown
(Homemade and handed down)
You plant your seeds and pray for rain
All that's lost comes round again
Standing firm on Holy ground
(Homemade and handed down)
(Homemade and handed down)

You plant your seeds and pray for rain
All that's lost comes round again
Standing firm on Holy ground
(Homemade and handed down)
(Homemade and handed down)
