How wondrous is our opportunity
Here on this living planet we call Earth
To contemplate the ways that we can be
And celebrate the glory of our worth.
Although in countless ways we’ve failed to rise
To our potentiality and done
Horrendous deeds, we may in time grow wise,
Before the final setting of our Sun.
What is it to be wise? To realize
What is of greatest value, making sure
Our every law and policy complies
With what will help Earth’s enterprise endure.
With so much yet to learn and comprehend,
Let us agree: our project must not end.
