Oh woe to you! (Planet Earth)

Oh woe to you

Who see the travail of planet earth

And turn the other way

To look at life’s material things.


Can’t you see the signs,

The marks that say

In loud chorus:

The time for doing is here,

The time for talking is past.


Lift up your voices,

You silent ones

Who walk with leaden hearts

But say not a word.


Be the voice in the wilderness

And shout:

Shout it to the mountains,

Shout it in the plains,

Shout that things must change


Shout that the circles of

Greed and power

Need to alter for the sake of mother earth.


Oh cry for the travail of this blue planet,

Let us see through these tears

The ages to come

And the world as it might be.
