Oh, the West Virginia hills! How majestic and how grand,
With their summits bathed in glory, Like our Prince Immanuels Land!
Is it any wonder then, That my heart with rapture thrills,
As I stand once more with loved ones On those West Virginia hills?
Oh, the hills, beautiful hills, How I love those West Virginia hills!
If o'er sea oer land I roam, Still I'll think of happy home,
And my friends among the West Virginia hills.
Oh, the West Virginia hills! Where my childhood hours were passed,
Where I often wandered lonely, And the future tried to cast;
Many are our visions bright, Which the future neer fulfills;
But how sunny were my daydreams On those West Virginia hills!
Oh, the West Virginia hills! How unchangd they seem to stand,
With their summits pointed skyward To the Great Almightys Land!
Many changes I can see, Which my heart with sadness fills;
But no changes can be noticed In those West Virginia hills.
Oh, the West Virginia hills! I must bid you now adieu.
In my home beyond the mountains I shall ever dream of you;
In the evening time of life, If my Father only wills,
I shall still behold the vision Of those West Virginia hills!
"My life by Brenda S. Breeden"
For a simple country girl, Brenda has had the opportunity to see things most people only dream about. She describes her life as a series of ups and downs. From the West Virginia hills she has traveled to three different countries and experienced heartaches and happiness along the way.
