To Work With God We Need To Learn
Each Nuance Of This Earth,
The Way The Planet Shifts And Moves,
Its Treasures, All Their Worth.
We Search Out Every Finite Source,
Yet Sometimes Lack The Care
To Measure Out Just What We Need,
To Leave Some Resting There.

And Now We Start To Comprehend
Not Just This Worldly Wealth,
But How Its Use Can Build, Enhance,
Or Damage Earthly Health;
Not Just The Strength Of Humankind,
But Climate’s Synergy,
The Balance On Which Life Depends
For Its Vivacity.

So Now We Learn To Understand
The Calling Of Our Race,
To Stand In Watch, To Call And Act,
Within Each Time And Place;
Not Just Renewing White Bleached Bones
Or Raising Dead To Life,
But Clothing Every Word With Love,
Where Hatred Once Was Rife.
