Love Song To The Earth

This is more than just a ‘feel good moment’ the Love Song’s creators and Apple are donating every penny that the song earns to Friends of the Earth and the UN Foundation to fund their work to fight climate change.  Some of the world’s biggest names in music have joined voices to inspire real action on climate change, and to support the United Nations’ call for a meaningful, universal climate agreement.

As Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmed el-Tayeb said in the recent signed Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together’

“Faith leads a believer to see in the other a brother or sister to be supported and loved. Through faith in God, who has created the universe, creatures and all human beings (equal on account of his mercy), believers are called to express this human fraternity by safeguarding creation and the entire universe and supporting all persons, especially the poorest and those most in need”.

In the light of this quote, the lyrics of this ‘Love Song To The Earth’ struck me as almost being a ‘litany’ of ‘prayer for action’ on behalf of the entire Universe and its Peoples.

It is worth watching the short video to the end.  The lyrics are below and the link to the official website is http://lovesongtotheearth.org/#about

 

Love Song To The Earth

This is an open letter
From you and me together
Tomorrow’s in our hands now
Find the words that matter
Say them out loud
And make it better somehow

Looking down from up on the moon
It’s a tiny blue marble
Who’d have thought the ground we stand on
Could be so fragile

Chorus
This is a love song to the Earth
You’re no ordinary world
A diamond in the universe
Heaven’s poetry to us
Keep it safe, keep it safe, keep it safe
cause it’s our world

It’s not about possessions, money, or religion
How many years we might live?
When the only real question that matters is still
A matter of perspective
Looking down from up on the moon
You’re a tiny blue marble
Who’d have thought the ground we stand on
Could be so fragile

Chorus repeat

BRIDGE Sean Paul Rap]
Bang Bang Bang
See Mama Earth is in a crazy mess
It’s time for us to do our best
From deep sea straight up to Everest
She under crazy stress
unless you wanna be motherless
Clean heart, Green Heart
is the way,

is stress
Speediness and too much Greediness
Six billion people all want plentiness
Some people think this is harmless
(It’s our world, It’s our world)
But if we continue their’ll
only be emptiness

Chorus (3rd)

This is a love song to the Earth
You’re no ordinary world
A diamond in the universe
Heaven’s poetry to us
Keep it safe, keep it safe, keep it safe

Chorus (4th)

This is a love song to the Earth
You’re no ordinary world
A diamond in the universe
Heaven’s poetry to us
Keep it safe, keep it safe, keep it safe

“Everybody keep it safe now”
“keep it safe”
It’s our world, it’s our world
it’s our world, it’s our world.
