Our ancient magnificent earth
Creation is crying out, how can we fully save the world?
Caused by human consumption and labour,
Wasteful resources, closer to our apocalypse
Abundance plundering, reserves unable to savour
Deserving our real love, us taking care properly of the planet
Instead a vicious cycle of disrespect and abuse.
Flowing ecosystem, oceans and food chain
Horrendously in agonised pain, wild animals endangered and becoming extinct
Corals being our lifeline, becoming dry skeletons
On the brink of man made instead of natural disaster,
Our threatening footprint and selfish behaviour- the main corruption catalysts
Business and greed causing it to unfortunately happen faster.
Elastic pulsating nature, pulled extremely hard to breaking point
Soon to snap causing our whole world to be destroyed
Nothing can preserve, sustain or fill this future void
Unless we all take drastic action!
Quit burning the atmosphere, diminishing her splendour.
Even biodegradable plastic, for the long term sadly not so fantastic
Forceful transformation has to be done right away,
We need to explore, aim to our full potential
Using all the credentials, tender love unconditional
Only God can save us, so please listen to what he teaches
To care, respect others and living creatures.
Dear God, please channel the Holy Spirit towards restoring earth, towards a plentiful new birth before Christ arrives once more.
