|from the book A Contemporary North American
by William John Fitzgerald
Bless our land from sea to sea.
Bless the fields giving life to me.
Bless the earth beneath my feet.
Bless the food we have to eat.
And yet, Creator God,
this is not "ordinary time."
This is extraordinary time,
when fertile earth lies supine,
forests are despoiled,
deserts are cursed by drought,
icebergs are melted by global warming,
bringing chaos out of paradise.
What I do for the earth,
I do for all the children.
Let the earth be for them
no desert, but precious gem.
Bless these children.
Bless their future life.
Bless the earth,
the womb of life.
