We are connected, you and I..
Like Wind and Rain and Earth and Sky..
We are joined by Heart and Soul
Created from God's Earthen mold;
We daily grow through Thought and Deed
God's Holy Love is our Seed..
Nurtured by our Faith and Love
Blessed by Guidance from above;
We are Light and Laughter, Joy..
We are Man, Woman, Girl and Boy
And we each Sing and Mourn and Weep
And what we sow we also Reap;
Connected by our Sacred Breath
We all share Life and suffer Death..
So we must Nurture one another
For we all are Sister, Brother;
Not Country, Religion, even Race
Should cause us Hate nor bring Disgrace
One blood are we, one Heart to beat
All gathered 'round Lord Jesus feet;
We are connected, you and I
Kin to those who run, who fly
To all God's Creatures on this Sod
We are all Children of God....
