The strength of the earth

  • for SSA voices unaccompanied

by Eric Williams


The strength of the Earth is the stones
And the same is the source of our bones.

The Water flows across the ground
And within our blood.

The Air blows around the world
And brings us our breath.

The Fire streams forth from the Sun without ceasing
And sustains our lives.

By these elements
We are formed.

By our voices
The beauty of the Creation is sung.
