Leader: Come, let us dwell in God's shelter.

Let us dwell in God's work of art.

Come, because the Earth is the Lord's.

And God's Earth is our home.

All: We live in God's World; we are not alone.

We share this life with the heaven's and the earth.

With the waters and the land,

with trees and grasses,

with fish, birds and animals,

with minerals and creature of every form

and with all our brothers and sisters.

Leader: God is good and everything God makes is good.

God is love and everything God makes is love's fruit.

Let us worship God!

and the promises of God are sure.
