What a wonderful world we live in
In spite of the bad things that seem to be everywhere
Still I have to say that this is a wonderful world
A world created by God of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen
Our God of power and might, our God of mercy and compassion
Having made it, God said that it was good
And then, did He not create Adam and Eve and all of us?
We now live to enjoy its beauty
This marvellous world that we call Earth
This Earth that we are called to be mindful of
For fear we lose more and more of its beauty
For fear we no longer can live in it
A possibility this is – given the way we have abused it
Given the fact that we don’t really care much for it
Stop! Stop! Destroy this earth no more! Cease plundering it!
Be not savages destroying with no care for future generations
And what more do I say? Stop your plunder!
Love the Earth, the Good Earth!
