Hold me in your arms, Mother Earth.
Let me see the wonders you share.
I will hold you in my heart, Mother Earth.
Bless the land, the water, the air.
For the air, forest, green and tall,
Ever breathing, sheltering.
Home to creatures, great and small,
I give thanks, rejoice and sing.
For the waters, sparkling blue,
Rivers flowing without end.
Precious drops, clean and pure,
I will cherish and defend.
For the ocean's mighty pow'r,
Womb of life for us all.
Ebb and flow, hour by hour.
I will listen to your call.
