Song for Mother Earth

By Ilchi Lee Comment

I wrote these song lyrics out of my love for Mother Earth. I hope that through them, you can reflect on your own relationship with the Earth and on the current state the Earth is in.

Song for Mother Earth -  man playing guitar

I want to place my head on your heart and cry today.

Beyond the river of time, our love falters amid tears.
How much longer must I live to know the earth.

Oh Earth, I cannot draw nearer because I am too unworthy.
Why do I become small whenever I stand before you,
while my eyes become wet when I stand behind your back?

I, who should stay silent because I am a fool, am your sinner.
And as long as there are memories, I am your child.
Why do I become small whenever I stand before you,
while my eyes become wet when I stand behind your back?
I, who should stay silent because I am a fool, am your sinner.
And as long as there are memories, I am your child.

You are Mother Earth.
Mother Earth, I love you. Please forgive me, I am a sinner.
From now on, Mother of Humanity, Mother of All Life, I will live for you.

We have come to the 21st century Earth in order to save the earth.
We are your children. We love you. We love you forever.
