Preserving Our Earthly Home

The planet is fashioned by God’s expert hands

Creating the depths and peaks across the land

He uses wisdom to create the seas

Refreshing the dry land that we see

 

Earth Day arrives as an annual event

Witnessing our actions that implement

We are asked to be loyal guardians of this earth

Preserving it always, adds to its value and worth

 

Loss of natural treasures causes intense sadness

Being good stewards, brings God much gladness

Farmers operate to be effective caretakers of the land

Asking the rest of us to walk with them, hand in hand

 

We are called by our Lord to be fully aware

Sending out trustworthy legions, always fair

History and science often transmit gloomy news

Watching this earthly home decline in our view

 

Look around the planet, where we call home to be

Asking, what can be accomplished for God to see?

Perhaps our political kingpins should stop and pause

Leading a call to action for a just and worthy cause

 

Our planet is transforming before our vigilant eyes

Envisioning climate change and more as time flies

Our earthly sanctuary furnishes a home for all

Protecting our environment, too precious to fall

Earth Day is a yearly event on April 22.  Many view “Earth Day” as an every day activity to preserve our planet for future generations.  These verses from Psalm 95:3-5 bring to mind God’s wondrous creation, which deserves our fullest attention in being excellent stewards of what He has given us.

“For the Lord is a great God and a great King above all gods.  In His hands are the depths of the earth; and the heights of the mountains are His also.  The sea is His, for He made it, and the dry land, which His hands have formed.”
