We Walk in Grace Upon This Earth

The sweet breath of life
The sweet breath of life

In Gratitude

all creatures, bright and beautiful
all creatures, bright and beautiful
all creatures, great and small
all creatures, great and small
The good Lord made them all.
The good Lord made them all.



Although we live in bodies from birth, for just a short while upon this earth,

We shall walk in grace, this human race, after death, and far more, its worth.

No matter what we've chosen to do, or the greatness of our every endeavor,

A life of servitude, or little happiness felt, our spirits to live in freedom, forever,


Every man, woman and child, each creature that flies or walks over this land,

All have souls, a spirit of light, this we see, and hear and feel, we understand.

Our creator provided this world we live in, and for the breath of life to be shared,

For there would be no oceans and green green trees given, if he hadn't cared.


These precious gifts were given to us all, to the great, and the weak, and the lame,

They were not intended to be wasted and lost, to be ruined, its beauty, in our shame.

As we each do walk upon this fine soil, and the bright fish swim in blue oceans, deep,

Every one who was blessed in this life, should honor and save it, before we all sleep!

For me, this feels prayerful--you made me stop and feel--and I guess that is the job of poetry!

Breath taking visuals and words inscribed in banality. Your captions reminded me of my younger days when I used to know that poem (All Things Bright and Wonderful by Cecil Frances Alexander)

by the heart...it's classic.

Thank you for this delightful and very enjoyable work!

So true, we are temporarily living here. There is so much more to come, but live it well while here and enjoy the earth's beauty. Blessings, dear friend.
