Let our earth be peaceful,
let our hearts be hopeful,
let our hands be gentle
for the love of God.

Let our ways be mindful,
mending what is hurtful,
doing what is needful
for the love of God.

Let our lives be fruitful,
beautiful and playful,
every day be thankful
for the love of God.

Author / Composer Comments

• Author Shirley Erena Murray, from her book Touch the Earth Lightly (Hope Publishing Co., 2008, page 154): “I have a liking for ‘small songs’ easily learned and useful to give short bursts within the liturgy, in contrast to heavier hymns. This might be used at the end of worship, or as thanksgiving after an offering, or, separating the stanzas, be used with spoken intercession.”
