Claim: A claiming of something as one’s rightful due. You may claim your car as your rightful means of transportation. If you play guitar, you may claim your favorite guitar as the rightful means by which you make great music. When we Claim This Land, we are stating that “this land” has been rightfully set apart for a particular purpose. In the song, Claim This Land, Ken Holt is lyrically stating that the purpose of “this land,” is to provide “a place where children grow up” to their full potential, “a place where children laugh” and play freely without fear of violence, and “a place where children learn to love” those of every skin color, ethnicity, and identity. Which begs the question, “What is the purpose of This Land.” Let the song speak.

Lyrics

Take my hand across the river. Take my hand across the sea. Take my hand across the ocean. Take my hand and come with me.

To a place where children grow up. To a place where children laugh. To a place where children learn to love. Take my hand, Claim This Land.

Touch my hand through the fences. Touch my hand and take the key. Touch my hand over the walls. Touch my hand and pray with me.

For a place where children grow up. For a place where children laugh. For a place where children learn to love. Touch my hand, Claim This Land.

Hold my hand when you're afraid. Hold my hand find strength in me. Hold my hand when some say don't. Hold my hand and walk with me.

To a place where children grow up. To a place where children laugh. To a place where children learn to love. Take my hand, Claim This Land.

We need a place where children grow up. We need a place where children laugh. We need a place where children learn to love. Take my hand, Claim This Land.
