This blue-green orb spirals through the blackness of space.

Illuminated by the sun she follows on her cosmic journey,

accompanied by the softly glowing moon.

Our urgent hearts lead her on the way.

Eager for fresh horizons among the stars,

we forsake the old ways born of human forgetting

to embrace the destiny shown by the One who came

on that first Christmas so long ago;

so to live consciously in the fields of grace

of which he spoke

as awakened souls on this new day of Creation.
