Cultivator (Psalm 8)

My Lady and our God,

   hallowed be your name on earth as it is in heaven

Your glory is confirmed by all the earth

   and throughout the cosmos.

Even from the mouths of babes

   we know the Truth,

   which silences our foes,

   and thwarts our nemeses

As I consider the heavens,

   part of your creation,

   yes, the moon and all the stars,

   part of the harmony of the beauty;

who are we that you would be present to us,

   why would you care about our children?

You have given us many graces and blessings

   and made us stewards of the earth

   to cultivate all life:

   the flocks and herds of the field,

   and the animals of the wilderness,

   the birds of the air, and

   the fish of the sea;

   every living thing.

My Lady and our God,    hallowed be your name on earth as it is in heaven

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
