In all of her wonders, in each breath that she breathes,
In the rumble of thunder, in the fall of the leaves,
In the chattering birdsong and the sparkle of dew,
In the carpet of white for the lamb and the ewe.

In the mountains so grand in the cool light of dawn,
In the simple delight of a staggering fawn,
In the scent of the pine cones on a warm summer day,
In the innocent laughter of children at play.

In the endless horizons and the skies of azure,
In the comforting rhythm of waves reaching shore,
In the breath-taking colours of crops in the field,
In the scars of our wars so amazingly healed.

Here are the gifts of mother nature, our earth,
Entrusted to us since the time of our birth,
Here is the legacy that we must defend,
And so share with our children a world without end.
