We are equipped in heart and mind

=========================================================

1) We are equipped in heart and mind

to intervene and smooth the way;

yet vain ambition to control

rejects, neglects God’s love.

====================================

2)We may disrupt, deduct, destroy

the seasons’ regularity:

the rocks’ suppos’d eternal strength

deep-founded in God’s love.

====================================

3)We’ve cause to sing with trees who breathe

and grow and shade and feed and house 

the birds who make sky heaven yet,

the Earth’s full of God’s love

====================================

4)With predators and prey we live

A woven tapestry diverse

threadbare through greed, injustice-worn

take warning from God’s love.

====================================

5)We will not know,  know-how, God knows 

Why bees with flowers dance for joy

We can describe and measure, yet

the answer’s in God’s love.
