Frackville Song


"Frackville"
by Emma Dreher Hoppes and Gertrude M. Tenenholz

Upon Broad Mountain's skyline
Above the foothills steep,
A gallant little city
Traditional faith doth keep.

In beauty rare and lovely
the rhododendron twine
and laurel in the Springtime
Form intricate design.

Though oft afar we wander
Wherever we may roam,
In mem'ries treasure garden
Frackville will still be home.

Chorus:
O home land, so dear
With loyal hearts and true
We pledge our devotion here
to Frackville anew;
With courage and strength
United we will be
To bring richer blessings
To our community.
