in honor of our Blue Planet
Words by Pete Tolleson
(in honor of first seeing Earth from space)
Traditional hymn melody "Amazing Grace"
AMAZING PLACE, SO BLUE AND ROUND
Amazing Place, so blue and round,
That sets my spirit free.
I once seemed lost but now am found,
Seemed blind, but now, I see.
This Earth has rendered good to me.
And all my fears relieved.
How precious is this Earth to see,
its beauty now perceived.
Through many dangers, toils and snares
we have already come.
'Tis Earth that brought us safe thus far,
and still will be our home.
When we've been here ten thousand years,
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing Earth's praise
than when we'd first begun.
