The Earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof

Dear God, enlarge in use our sense of fellowship with the animals.

to whom Thou gave the earth to be a common home before us

and who share with us the toils, trials, and joys of life.

We remember with sorrow that, in the past,

we have often exercised the high dominion of our kind

with ruthless cruelty

so that the voice of the earth

which should have gone up to Thee in song

has so often rise instead as a groan of travail.

May we realizwe that they live not for us alone

but for themselves and for Thee

and that they, too, love the sweetness of life.


Peace of the Lord
