Healing Hymn for Mother Earth

(to the tune of Battle Hymn of the Republic)

My eyes have seen the glory of the healing of the Earth,

the calming of the climate that protects our place of birth.

We’ll do it for our children and we’ll fight for all we’re worth,

Let’s heal the Earth today!

Chorus:

What do we say?!

Glory, glory hallelujah,

Joy of Earth is given to us!

Glory, glory hallelujah,

Let’s heal the Earth today!

Finale:

What do we say?!

(arm raised high, fingers spread like a tree’s branches)

GAIA!

(spoken)

May the Tree of Life be born from our hearts.

ADDITIONAL VERSES

My eyes have seen the glory of the healing of the Sea,

the stopping of the drilling, that makes our Mother bleed,

the cleaning of pollution so the fish can all swim free,

Let’s heal the Sea!

Chorus

My eyes have seen the glory of the healing of the Air.

Those coal-fired power plants are more than we can bear,

when kids have trouble breathing then we know it isn’t fair.

Let’s heal the Air!

Chorus

My eyes have seen the glory of the healing of the Land

No need to spray out poisons to put food into our hands.

Taking care of gardens, we all can understand

Let’s heal the Land!

Chorus

My eyes have seen the glory of the saving of the Wild

The balance our planet needs places not made to be mild

Where every animal can be Mother Nature’s child,

Let’s protect the wildlands today!

Chorus

My eyes have seen the glory of the healing of the Hurt,

where people and the landscape have been cut down to the dirt.

What we can do is plant a tree and heal a wounded heart.

Restore people and planet today!

What do we say?!

Glory, glory hallelujah,

Joy of Earth is given to us!

Glory, glory hallelujah,

Let’s heal the Earth today!

What do we say?!

(arm raised high, fingers spread like a trees branches)

GAIA!

(spoken)

May the Tree of Life be born from our hearts.
