Earth is full of wit and wisdom sounding God’s delighted laugh.
From the tiny roly-poly to the tree-top-tall giraffe,
all creation sings in wonder; even rocks and trees rejoice
as they join the ringing chorus: echoes of our Maker’s voice.
Earth is full of wit and wisdom, woven into harmony.
Every creature has a purpose; every flower and bumble-bee,
spider, human, redwood, gecko, monkey, chicken, mouse and snake,
live within a single fabric: cloth that only God could make.
Earth is full of wit and wisdom: penguin, platypus and snail,
cactus, sea-slug, oak and algae, from the microbe to the whale.
In this great and strange creation, with a breath God gives us birth;
born of soil to live as stewards, called to love and serve the earth.
