Lord your splendor and majesty of nature are witness to the earth.  (1)
It glorifies your love and magnificent powers throughout the universe.

You have given us a wonderful garden rich with all we need.  (2)
Let us hearken that our life is but for only a moment, indeed.  (3)

Father we have been to the valley of the shadow of death.  (4)
We sat upon mountain tops so lovely they took away our breath.  (5)

You have placed truth in our hearts and gave us a conscious to bear.  (6)
As butterflies unfold from cocoons, we too, will have a new body to wear.  (7)

How can we express with words that are unknown to us of your spirit divine?
You created this earth and everything under heaven has been by your design. (8)

We were made in your image and given our freedom of choice.
You have commanded all that is just by the sound of your voice.  (9)

The splendor and majesty of your world is beyond words of our imagination.  (10)
But our eyes can see, our ears can hear, and our hearts need no interpretation.  (11)
