On a sleepy endless ocean when the world lay in a dream
There was rhythm in the splash and roll, but not a voice to sing
So, the moon shone on the breakers and the morning warmed the waves
‘til a single cell did jump and hum for joy as though to say
This is my home, this is my only home
This is the only sacred ground that I have ever known
And should I stray in the dark night alone
Rock me Goddess in the gentle arms of Eden
Then the day shone bright and rounder, the one turned into two
The two into ten thousand things, and old things into new
And on some virgin beach head, one lonesome critter crawled
He looked about and shouted out in his most astonished drawl
Then all the sky was buzzin’ and the ground was carpet green
The wary children of the wood went dancing in-between
And the people sang rejoicing when the fields were glad with grain
This song of celebration from their cities on the plain
Now there's smoke across the harbor, and there's factories on the shore
This world is ill with greed and will and enterprise of war
But I will lay my burden in the cradle of your grace
And the shining beaches of your love and the sea of your embrace
Rock me Goddess in the gentle arms of Eden.
This is my home!
