Earth Day 2013: The Earth Is My Church

Posted By on December 21, 2019


When I put on my Sunday best I proceed to get undressed My holy temple requires no clothes No high heels, no pantyhose I’m not trying to be malicious Heretical or sacrilegious I’m not an atheist, it’s just the reverse I’m a human soul on a spiritual search The earth is my church The earth is my church The earth is my church The earth comes first I don’t need no preacher man No Sunday school, no master plan No fiery hell, no mighty sword No oxy-moronic “holy” wars I don’t have to bash the Bible All I need for my survival Is the sun, the sea, the sky, the dirt And that’s the whole story, chapter and verse The earth is my church The earth is my church The earth is my church The earth comes first At one with nature’s innocence The dolphins and the elephants I kiss the trees, embrace the sky I harmonize with the butterflies Freedom is the final fruition Of the fate of the human condition Corruption of religion is history’s curse Universal love’s the only vision of worth The earth is my church The earth is my church The earth is my church The earth comes first The earth is my church The earth is my church The earth is my church The earth is my church The earth is my church The earth is my church The earth is my church The earth is my churc�

  1. Earth/Esterlla [Origin Name] is no one temple, but her own; we to build our own places within our own minds. Frame Works & Ideals of Building within are but steps; not absolution's when ALL is Eternal & not a Set Understanding. Evolution within all angles & Evolution Discerned; obviousism Apply'ed. T.P.W.

  3. thought of showing this to a friend and i typed “the earth is my church”, and this one showed up, didn’t realized, that this is one of your upload, as admirer of your channel. somehow i got it saved and piled up on my bookmarks. anyway, thank you very much for this uniting song for humanity, it’s not being sacrilegious as it says but celebrating of how it is to be alive…

    thank you also for providing the lyrics from your blog

    kathmandau, this is a singularly MAGNIFICENT SONG! I have been listening to it for the past week. I CANNOT get enough of it. This is the essence of the world that we live in. It is a philosophy that my Grandfather, native people, Cherokee from Red Hill, Virginia instilled in me from infancy when I was 2 years of age. It is a spiritual journey, a quest to make things right in the natural world, it begins and ends with the Earth. It is our foundation, lifeblood. Best, Thomas "cat"

    When the earth is tampered with, the universe knows. When the butterflies disappear, wheen the fish die in the streams, lakes, rivers and oceans, we know that we have NOT done right by the planet. It is incontrovertible. Keep the Earth alive, Respect the Earth. First EARTH! Always and Forever. When the buffalo disappeared, verdant green forests that grew rampantly over the land, gone, love the EARTH. There is much still to do . We must do it, whatever it takes. best T "cat"

  14. I suppose all things come in the appropriate time, my friend–perhaps because this was a good day for me to spend some time seeing the beauties of Holland on your page….Thank you.

  15. THis is nice but the music doesnt fit the topic if youre talking about earth as a place for us to live in where we have to take care of it

  16. Thank you, my friend.
    The song matches my intention very well–the earth (all of it) is my holy temple.
