Love all God’s Creation
Love all God’s creation,
both the whole and every grain of sand.
Love every leaf, every ray of light.
Love the animals,
love the plants,
love each separate thing.
If thou love each thing
thou wilt perceive the mystery of God in all;
and when once thou perceive this,
thou wilt thenceforward grow every day
to a fuller understanding of it:
until thou come at last to love
the whole world
with a love that will then be
all-embracing and universal.”
