(With joy!)
We rejoice in all life!

We live in all things
All things live in us

We rejoice in all life!

We live by the sun
We move with the stars

We rejoice in all life!

We eat from the earth
We drink from the rain
We breathe the air

We rejoice in all life!

We share with the creatures
We have strength through their
gifts

We rejoice in all life!

We depend on the forests
We have knowledge through their
secrets

We rejoice in all life!

We have the privilege of seeing and
understanding
We have the responsibility of caring
We have the joy of celebrating

We rejoice in all life!

We are full of the grace of creation
We are graceful
We are grateful

We rejoice in all life!
