Praise the Divine Gardener, inspired by Psalm 148 — Ana Gobledale, UK

Praise the Eternal One, the Divine Gardener.

Who plants the sun, the moon, the stars in the heavens.

Who creates earth, the amazing garden upon which we live.

Who loosens rocks into teeming, incubating soil.

Who spreads the seeds of life in the seas, land, and skies

– which transform into beasts that swim, crawl and fly.

Who spreads a dazzling array of flora on field and plain.

Who plants dense forests and open moorland.

Who orchestrates nourishment through clouds, thunder and rain.

Praise the architect of earth and heaven

In whose lush garden we stand today.
