1 Waterfall and ocean,
canyon, cliff and shore;
valley, hill and mountain,
river, rock and moor,
wonders God created,
treasures to defend!
We should love them, work to save them,
strength and spirit spend.
Thank God for this world of wonders,
priceless treasure stored;
go in peace and daring,
love and serve the Lord.

2 Rainbow on a stormcloud,
snow in winter's eye;
rising green of springtime,
summer sapphire sky;
blaze of gold in autumn,
crimson sunset glow;
out in space more wonders waiting,
more than we can know:
Thank God for this world of wonders,
priceless treasure stored;
go in peace and daring,
love and serve the Lord.

3 Earth and sky and water
all God's creatures share;
living things may perish
if we do not care.
God on earth has shown us
we must play our part,
love creation, love each other,
thinking with our heart;
Thank God for this world of wonders,
priceless treasure stored;
go in peace and daring,
love and serve the Lord.
