The Louisiana State Environmental Song

The Gifts of Earth

words and music by Frances LeBeau

    See the world around you,
    All the wonders of the land,
    The woods and fields and flowers,
    Sunny skies and seas and sands.

    It's a gift for all the people,
    To live in this great land,
    Where the beauty all around us,
    Teaches us to understand ...

    That the gifts of earth are in our hands.
    To life we hold the key.
    So let's clean America, make our land
    A home for you and me.

    Take a look around you,
    At the wonders of the land.
    Think about tomorrow.
    Take the time to understand ...

    That the gifts of earth are in our hands.
    To life we hold the key.
    So let's clean America, make our land
    A home for you and me.
