Refrain     

Called by earth and sky, promise of hope held high,

This is our sacred living trust, treasure of life sanctified,

called by earth and sky.

1.  Precious these waters endless seas, deep oceans dream,

waters of healing, rivers of rain, the wash of love again.

Refrain

2. Precious this gift, the air we breathe, wind born and free,  Breath of the Spirit blow through this place, our gathering and our grace.

Refrain

3.  Precious these mountains, ancient sands; vast fragile land.  Seeds of our wakening rooted and strong, Creation’s faithful song.         

Refrain

4.  Precious the fire that lights our way, bright dawning day.  Fire of passion, sorrow undone, our faith and justice one.
