A DECEMBER PRAYER
Spirit of the Earth wash clean
the land you love, this fragile planet.
You alone control the winds,
command the seas. Your will be granted.
Wash the earth of pride and greed,
the sins of those who rape and plunder.
You alone can save the earth,
Protector, Lord of Light and Thunder.
Spirit of the Earth we call out,
hear our prayers, hear our crying.
Mother heaves and groans in pain;
we hold her close. We fail for trying.
You alone can save the world from those
who trumpet gold and glamour.
Send your flood, a wave of love.
Let peace reign now and joy forever.
