A time to recognize and appreciate the miracle of the Earth,
A unique place in all of the universes visible in sight;
We are to learn more, demonstrating our wisdom and our care,
Expressing better behavior, thoughtful actions, doing right.
Surely by now, we owe regard to our Earth’s Creator,
How difficult is that to do with an honest heart?
Then we respond with gratitude and songs of praise,
Showing the next generation how to do their part.
