From desert to forest, from sun to shade,
Open to sheltered, gravel to green,
Revel in beauty, delight in the land,
The grace and the glory of all you have seen,
Yearning for joy that no fortune can jade.

Of desire and awe are all creatures made,
Not living one moment but with gratitude keen,
Embracing with passion both gift and command.
