From the lowlands of the marshes
to the high rise of heaven's high,

Our world's a mirror image
of man's actions by and by.

Purity of water, earth's resources,
beauty of fowl flying high, 

Aquatic life of massive oceans,
speak of doom, looming nigh.

Thoughts of children, air to breathe,
massive spending, food supply.

Cast our nets for future's man,
lend your hands, we all must try.
