GOD GAVE MAN THE EARTH TO ENJOY - NOT TO DESTROY
"The earth is the Lord's and the fullness
He gave it to man as a Gift of His Love
So all men might live as He hoped that they would,
Sharing together all things that were good...
But man only destroyed" the good earth of God" -
He polluted the air and ravished the sod,
He cut down the forests with ruthless disdain,
And the earth's natural beauty he perverted for gain...
And all that God made and all that He meant
To bring man great blessings and a life of content
Have only made man a "giant of greed"
In a world where the password is "SEX, SIN and
And now in an age filled with violent dissent
Man finds he's imprisoned in his own discontent -
He has taken the earth that God placed in man's care
And built his own "hell" without being aware
That the future we face was fashioned by man
Who in ignorance resisted GOD'S BEAUTIFUL PLAN,
And what God created to be paradise
Became by man's lust and perversion and vice
A "caldron of chaos" in a "fog of pollution"
To which man can find no cure or solution -
How far man will go to complete his destruction
Is beyond a computer's robot deduction.
The earth is the Lord's, and they that dwell
