How Wondrous this World

How wondrous this world

Lost among our modern distractions

Beauty of the mountains

Joy in the raging rivers

Mystery of the oceans

Lushness of our forests

Cast aside by youth out of boredom

Zion, Yellowstone, Grand Canyon,

Great Lakes, Salt Lake, Crater Lake,

Giant Redwoods, Joshua Trees, dwarf pines,

Nothing but passing scenery

Have we truly progressed

Ignoring that from which we came

That to which we will someday return

How wondrous is this world

Some of us will never know
