1. The earth grows old and groans beneath its burden of mankind,
    Who, enslaved to sin and misery, to heav’nly things are blind.
When Earth was formed, no taint of sin was found upon her shores,
    For all nature was in harm’ny with a wise Creator’s laws.
Obedient to God’s commands, pure joy and peace held sway,
    Till, despite the blessings he enjoyed, man chose to disobey.
From that time forth the curse of sin has rested on the world,
    Ah, its woe is seen on ev’ry hand as history unfurls.

Refrain
So turn, oh man, behold your God! Forsake your foolish ways.
    For only then will you find rest, and peace through all your days.
So turn, oh man, behold your God! Forsake your foolish ways.
    For only then will you find rest, and peace through all your days.

2. In strife and war, calamities, in famine, loss and greed,
    Earth, itself abused and suff’ring much, has borne each wicked deed.
While God looks on with heavy heart at mankind’s foolish choice,
    Why will they not stop and listen to His gentle, pleading Voice?
“I have the answers that you seek to all of this world’s woes,
    For My ways are higher than your own, My thoughts you cannot know.
Your heart renewed is what you need, then enmity will cease;
    Yes, and I alone can do this work, and give you lasting peace.”
Refrain
