All Good Things


And when the moon glows on clear summer evenings
Stars shine far away
And Mother Earth is still and sleeping
Rest now until the day
All the birds in slumber
No magpie sings her song
And all the children sleep and dream
Peace be still peace be still

And when the sun rises over the mountains
And dances on the ocean waves
And kookaburras laugh in the gum trees
There’s hope again with every new day
All the birds are singing
Eternal harmonies
And all across this ancient land
We give our thanks for all good things
For all good things
