I Have A Goodly Heritage

#1 on my list of 'difficult songs' to sing is "I Have A Goodly Heritage". I tune in to Baptist Radio Network via Live 365 and this song has always been in their playlist. I felt the love from the very first time I heard it. I looked for a sheet music or chords, but there was none. Instead, I stumbled on this blog and the actual song-writer commented. Leah Sandlin wrote the song in honor of her godly parents.

This song has touched so many families and sang in various congregations. Been so blessed by the song.





I may not have riches as some others may
But I have a mother who knows how to pray
There may be some things I've missed in my youth
But I have a father who stands for the truth

I have a good-ly heritage
I'm blessed with things you can'-t see
I _ have a goodly heritage
And that is worth far more _ to me

And if in the future, my parents pass on,
To dwell in that City we've come to call Home
They may not leave me the wealth of this world
But I will inherit their God and His Word

I have a good-ly heritage
I'm blessed with things you can'-t see
I _ have a goodly heritage
And that is worth far more _ to me
