A Children’s Grace
Earth who gives to us our food,
Sun who makes it ripe and good,
Dearest earth and dearest sun,
Joy and Love for all you’ve done.
A Morning Prayer
To the Gods and Goddesses, this we pray:
Keep me safe throughout the day.
I’ll learn new things and make new friends
and come home safe
when my day ends.
A Bedtime Blessing
Now I lay me down to rest,
I pray that all the world be blest,
Lady Moon and Sister Star,
Watch over me from afar,
Mother Earth is always there,
And keeps me safe within her care,
The Lord of Dreams will dance and sing,
And happy dreams will to me bring,
And when I wake to greet the day,
Brother Sun will light my way.
The earth is big and fat and round.
I love the sky, the sea and the ground.
I love the birds and dogs and sheep.
and all the animals that fall asleep.
I love the flowers and rocks and trees.
I love the earth, and it loves me.
Psalm to Gaia
The Earth is my mother, I shall not want.
She nurtures me in green pastures;
she freshens me with flowing waters.
She restores my body and awakens my soul.
Although I walk in the shadow
of changing seasons and passing time,
I will not fear death,
for the essence of life is within me,
the peace and beauty of Earth comfort me.
She teaches me to harvest her abundant gifts,
she fills my heart with compassion,
I drink from the cup of simple pleasures.
As I look to the skies with wonder
at the immensity of the universe,
I know I am blessed beyond measure
to live all the days of my life
in the bountiful house of Gaia.
