Chorus:

We are standing on holy ground in this time and place
We are standing on holy ground a gift of grace
We are standing on holy ground let us not deface
This holy ground in this time and place


We work the land we do not own
It’s not really ours, though we call it home
It belongs to the ages the future and the past
We are called to care, to help it last

Chorus:

The earth has changed many times many ways
Seldom has it changed in so few days
Our thirst for power makes us weak
When we think were heading west, we’re really going east

Chorus:

When we nurture the earth we nurture ourselves
When we give what we get all is well
When we care for creation, creation cares for us
God’s kingdom has come it’s a blessed trust

Chorus:
