And so God spoke the world to be
Over water, under sky
Dark abyss beneath the Lord
Hovers her will as time goes by

Then light was spoken to the world
Suddenly all bright and new
Seas there teemed with nascent life
Wonder as it yearned and grew

Then it ran onto the land
Soon it took off to the sky
Then was seen the eyes of Man
in Eden where our hearts do lie

And now does God shed tears of grief
Her creatures in such conflicts fight
All claim her right as flags they wave
Believing that their might makes right

And what now of the Earth she made
Of word and fire, mind and will
Will it be cinder crisped and burned
Beyond the ken that God has still
