There’s an outdated hymn you can be accustomed to that includes those phrases: “This is my Father’s international, / And to my listening ears, / All nature sings, and around me jewelry / The song of the spheres. / this can be my Father’s international, / He shines in all that’s reasonable; / within the rustling grass, I listen him go, / He speaks to me all over” (Maltbie D. Babcock, “This Is My Father’s World”; 1901). It is correct nonetheless this present day that “all nature sings,” however it is more and more tricky to seize the melody. virtually at any place we pass, nature’s voice is now muted through the sound of site visitors and diverse digital units. those that exit to stroll or jog are inclined to put on a tool that retains them involved with information or tune or speech—so that, deliberately or now not, they've got close out nature’s sound and dulled its influence.
Which brings me to the purpose of this booklet. I have a good time enormously within the “green” move that has made new hundreds of thousands aware of the sweetness of our construction and the blessed necessity of taking care of it passionately. it is a terrific step within the correct course, and it places caliber content material into what may well rather be little greater than sentimental emotions. yet i would like us to move farther than that. i would like us no longer just to see—and certainly, to be thankful for—the wonders of nature. i would like us to move past nature’s beautiful good looks till we study the various classes it's going to educate us, classes approximately either lifestyles and God. while nature sings (as it does each second) its melody attracts us to God, if purely we hear with our complete being.
