Be Fruitful and Multiply

The lands and seas are yours as you spread out across the earth. 

The animals will fear you, though you must respect their worth.

 Regard the life of everything as worthy as your own. 

The image of your maker is the form in which you’ve grown.   


Live confidently, knowing that destruction, if it comes,

is not the work of God above, but something that you’ve done. 

The rainbow shows the harmony of what your Lord intends. 

Reminding all that love endures and mercy never ends.
