and who has sat beneath your green?
What long-past elders sat and spoke
beneath your arching leafy cloak,
sharing wisdom, guiding folk?
Widest sky of blue unfurled
once spread a roof across the world
of men and women of this land,
the families of every clan,
a simple-living hardy band.
Ancient mountain rising high,
where princely eagles soar and fly,
you have seen the ebb and flow
of the people down below,
Sometimes joy, and sometimes woe.
Alpha Father of us all,
created us but let us fall.
You gifted people with free will,
to choose for good or choose for ill.
Always near us, with us still.
present when the world appeared,
You came to live upon the Earth,
born through human virgin birth.
You give us life, you give us worth.
Before the Earth had come to be,
the oldest mountain, deepest sea,
You always are and always were,
Superbly holy, rich in care,
You're everlasting, everywhere.
