1 O come, all ye faithful, fearful yet courageous!
   O come, we as one brave-hearted our fate must face!
   Come we together, resolute through peril,
   to stand for all Creation (3x)
   Earth's hope to hold!

2 Grow, trees and bushes, flowers, grasses, rushes!
   Grow from rich soil to keep Earth breathing anew!
   Your fruits do feed us, your deep roots so need us
   to stand for all Creation (3x)
   Earth's hope to hold!

3 Blow, breath of Heaven, wind of transformation!
   Blow 'way all currents stifling Life's precious air!
   Breathe through our body, Breath of Life and Spirit
   to stand for all Creation (3x)
   Earth's hope to hold!

4 Flow, precious water, balm of Terra Mater!
   Flow o'er the earth, rejoin the great sea of Life!
   Rivers feed oceans, birds and fish us motion
   to stand for all Creation (3x)
   Earth's hope to hold!

5 Whale, bear and raptor, all Man's kin in Nature!
   Humbly concede we now our shared earthly home!
   One, all, and Nation, vowing reparation
   to stand for all Creation (3x)
   Earth's hope to hold!
