A Poem About Praising God on Earth Day
Earth Day Poem Summary
A poem for Earth Day that praises the God who made the earth, who gave us all what we need. We need to respect what He has given us. In this poem, I apologize on behalf of humans for the damage we have inflicted on this beautiful earth.
Oh Earth ...
Today, oh earth, you are given
Homage and apologies for the damage,
We inflict on you by our livin'
As we increase our continual crammage ....
We set aside a day just for planting,
A time for picking up after others,
We do some self-righteous ranting,
And then go back to our regular druthers ...
Earth, you are used and abused by
Businesses who feel the taunt of the stock price
Sullied and poisoned by an endless supply
Of chemicals, machinery and contaminates.
Oh, earth, you do need saving, and
It seems it's an impossibly hard task.
The only one that's left to rescue our land
Is the very person we neglect to ask.
Oh God ...
He's the one that made the whole earth and
Then he created the animals and plants, too,
He's the only one that can heal our land
The the only one that can make all things new.
Oh Father God, you've created
This beautiful earth we call home!
We are delighted and we're elated
That you've given us room to roam!
We're sorry for the money we're chasing
We own up to the damage we've caused
We repent of the lifestyle of wasting,
We are sad for the resources we've lost.
Oh God, on this great Earth Day,
We honour you for all that You've done.
You made this place for our play
As we live our days here under the sun.
