The Earth Is His

The earth is his and all it holds, its wealth
and boundless harvest his, the bright sun his,
the moon and stars that burn in fiery ritual.

Bright gold of wheat, the purple grape, earth’s gift
to us, his gift to earth, in symbol of our gratitude
with bread, with wine, we worship him.

Accept our gift, our food, our drink, and with
them, Lord, our words and deeds, ourselves and
souls: we offer these, returning all your gifts to you.
