Lyrics by Jane Johnson
Video by Paki Wieland
Amazing Place! How sweet this Earth
That bore a wretch like me.
We’ve nearly lost Her now I see
How great that loss could be.
Such loss that taught my heart to fear
Creation’s end so near.
How precious did this place appear
The hour its end was clear.
Through many dangers, toils and snares
We have already come.
This Earth has kept us safe thus far
In our delirium.
The world has been so good to me
My ignorance secure;
I’ve wasted water, air, and tree,
As if life could endure.
Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
My mortal life shall cease
But shall no others then avail
A life of joy and peace?
Though we’ve been here ten thousand years
And filled its garbage bins,
May Earth still float among the spheres
A place where life begins.
