Escaping life’s hectic pace

Finding nature’s retreat

Breathing her refreshing air

Freedom’s open love seat


Waking to blessed sunrise

Living off nature’s land

Sowing seeds, fertile harvest

Freedom’s new motherland


Pursuing nature’s rhythm

Feeling never alone

Answering only to God

Freedom’s sturdy jawbone


Sleeping under nightly stars

Filling mind, mellow dreams

Sharing nature’s melodies

Freedom’s harmony beams


Experiencing new joy

Tasting nature’s flavor

Discovering Father’s gift

Freedom’s grace-filled favor
