I.

Rise for the Earth, the time has come!
Our hearts shall Courage bring!
Let every heart

prepare to do its part
that Earth with hope may sing,
that Earth with hope may sing,
that in hope God's

Creation here on Earth may sing!

II.

See for the Earth, the time has come!
Our minds bear vision sure!
Let every mind

Man's sins work to unwind
that Earth's life may endure,
that Earth's life may endure,
that God's Creation,

Earth's life may endure!

III.

Work for the Earth, the time has come!
Our backs we brace for work!
Let all of our might,

'gainst greed and sloth firm fight
to redeem our precious Earth,
to redeem our precious Earth
to redeem all Creation

on this precious Earth!

IV.
Hold onto Earth, the time has come!
Our hands are set to grasp!
Let every hand,

take hands across all lands
our kinship to hold fast,
our kinship to hold fast,
our kinship with

all of Earth's life to hold fast!

V.

Rise for the Earth, the time has come!
Our Faith moves our rebirth!
God's Fiat is writ large,

Earth's stewardship Mankind's charge!
Bring Fellowship for the Earth,
bring Fellowship for the Earth,
bring Fellowship forth

to save our precious Earth!
