Prayer on the Earth

O God, we thank you for the Earth
Wide enough to keep us looking,
Open enough to keep us moving,
Dry enough to keep us honest,
Prickly enough to make us tough,
Green enough to go on living,
Old enough to give us dreams,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

(adapted from Gary Snyder, Earth Verse)
