The tree of life
is shelter in the storm,
standing elegant
in sunshine and in rain.

Rooted in the great story,
you rise up and
extend your branches,
heal our planet’s wounds,
bathe us in beauty all around.

You are the tree of life.
Dance in the fields.
Celebrate the presence
of every flower and bird
in the meadow of new life.

Like each plant,
spider and bird,
join the chorus.
Proclaim with joy
the mystery we call our life.
