Touch the Earth Lightly

Author: Shirley Erena Murray Meter: 10.10.10.10 Appears in 21 hymnals Scripture: Genesis 2:15 First Line: Touch the earth lightly, use the earth gently Lyrics: 1 Touch the earth lightly, use the earth gently, nourish the life of the world in our care: gift of great wonder, ours to surrender, trust for the children tomorrow will bear. 2 We who endanger, who create hunger, agents of death for all creatures that live, we who would foster clouds of disaster, God of our planet, forestall and forgive! 3 Let there be greening, birth from the burning, water that blesses and air that is sweet, health in God’s garden, hope in God’s children, regeneration that peace will complete. 4 God of all living, God of all loving, God of the seedling, the snow, and the sun, teach us, deflect us, Christ reconnect us, using us gently, and making us one.

I Sing th'Almighty Power of God

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.6.8.6 D Appears in 442 hymnals Scripture: Genesis 2:1-22 Lyrics: 1 I sing th'amighty power of God that made the mountains rise, that spread the flowing seas abroad, and built the lofty skies. I sing the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule by day; the moon shines full at his command, and all the stars obey. 2 I sing the goodness of the Lord that filled the earth with food; he form'd the creatures with his word, and then pronounced them good. Lord, how thy wonders are displayed where’er I turn my eye, if I survey the ground I tread, or gaze upon the sky! 3 Creatures, as num'rous as they be, are subject to thy care; there's not a place where we can flee, but God is present there. His hand is my perpetual guard, he keeps me with his eye; why should I then forget the Lord, who is forever nigh? Topics: In The Beginning Creator of Heaven and Earth Used With Tune: ELLACOMBE
