Earth, Father Time ~
Oh mother earth, and father time..
Your spirit fills this heart of mine...
From distant mountains and gurgling streams..
The music of which my heart sings...
From yonder distant hill does fly,
The eagle soaring in the sky....
It fills my soul with wondrous joy..
To see the beauty you employ...
Oh great spirit in the sky...
Clear my eyes to gaze on high..
At all the gracious beauty here...
And catch my silently falling tears.
Mother earth and father time....
Plant within this heart of mine.
The beauty of all nature divine..
Rekindle my spirit with love, sublime.
