Psalm 108 for Earth Day

I fix my heart on the Highest and the Deepest.
   I sing and make music
Wake up my spirit,
   awake, my instruments
I myself will awaken the dawn.
I will sing songs of God
   whose loving kindness is infinite
And whose faithfulness covers the Earth.

From the center of my heart comes a knowing:
   The cradles of civilization are mine.
The ravaged lands of Africa are mine.
   and the capitals of the world, they are mine, too.
So are the old worlds and the new
   the third world and the world down under.
The melting ice caps are mine, the islands,
steppes and mountains, the earth to her core
Love them!
Take care of them!
