From the album Our Sweet Lord

“Relieve the Burden of the Earth” reminds us of the difficulties that Mother Earth is presently experiencing and how we can successfully relieve her from this burden.

Lyrics

Mother Earth is overburdened
By our lust, anger, and greed.
We try to lord it over everything
Instead of taking just what we need.

I hope some day we’ll all realize
That with our source we must harmonize.
But until we wake up from our senseless sleep
Mother Earth will piteously weep.

God help me live my life
With some of kind of worth.
God help me live my life
To relieve the burden of the earth.

My dear brothers and sisters,
Why needlessly suffer this strife?
By relinking ourselves with the Supreme
We’ll bring this planet back to life.

I know my days are numbered.
I’ll soon be leaving this place.
Until then I’ll pass on this message,
A benediction for the human race.

God help me live my life
With some of kind of worth.
God help me live my life
To relieve the burden of the earth.
