It’s a great big world you’ve made, God,
and we are small bits upon it.
The mountains, the glaciers, the bounding oceans,
the mass of the earth beneath our feet,
the reach of the stars, and the galaxies stretching
to infinite distances, known only by you.
Give us a universal vision, to see our planet as you do.
Could there be peace on earth, could it begin with us?
Help us see beyond borders,
for there are no countries from space.
You know all that’s done under the sun,
and all that needs doing so we can get along.
We breathe this good air,
we plant our feet on this good ground,
we lift our hands and bless all your creation with thankfulness.
We look to you for all we need to survive and thrive,
walking a path to a sustainable future.
In Jesus’ name, let it be so. Amen.
