So …


So, weve finally saved the planet

made it verdant, lush and green

by our effort reversed the damage

that we before had seen


We live in reclaimed paradise

thanks to all that we have done

thanks to our words, our works, our efforts

we have great distance come


But …


Weve not yet cured the greater harm

where our madness had its start

when the way of God and ways of man

at first began to part


What goods been done to save the world

yet leave those upon it chained

to ancient evil whose hate the curse

that left creation maimed


Of all thats made we have not saved

what will outlive a perished earth

who life abundant could recapture

had they believed its worth


We serve the Saviour of a world

for all who come He will atone

we do our fellows grave injustice

to save the world alone


So ...
