Stewards in the Garden

Our care is our call from the Lord
the creator of all there is
calling us to watch over the land
the animals, the foreigners
all who come in our midst
to worship God alone
and not set ourselves up as king
to nurture and watch over the earth
to walk humbly before our God
to take time to rest
and care for each other
as we know we should
