How lovely is thy Dwelling Place,
O God of Heaven and Earth and Stars and Planets.
You dwell in the song of the bumblebees,
you live in the heart of kisses.
You reside in the trails of honeycomb,
you abide in the sweet mint taste of lemonade made by my little friends next door.

Oh! How lovely is thy Dwelling Place,
O God of Forests and Moonlight and Lakes and Gardens.
You lodge in the sighs of fresh mourning and old grief,
you stay in the chattering of squirrels cramming their winter stores.
You occupy every lazy breeze,
You inhabit the ephemeral presence of unicorns.

How lovely is thy Dwelling Place,
O God of all that Is, of all that Was, of all that Will Be.
