Give thanks for living in this universe
And thanks for knowing what a miracle
Life is on Earth, a planet that can nurse
And nurture life, both plant and animal.
But whom are we to thank for all of this
Good orderly direction cosmically,
That everything’s not merely hit-or-miss
But manifests a purpose we can see?
Good Orderly Direction’s acronym
Is GOD, which we personify to name
Someone to praise, giving all thanks to Him—
That Source from which the universe once came.
The force that through the green fuse flows
Is that from which our Universe arose.
