This, my dearest, is a global song

Open all of your senses and marvel along

When your heart fills with wonder, let it voice into words

An ode to our Mother

May this hymn be heard



This song is a worldwide invitation to marvel at the beauty of our planet Earth.

By bringing together each of our personal odes, it will become a global song that connects us all, embracing the richness of our cultural diversity. All sharing one planet.


Marvel along

I am inviting you to add a verse to this song. You are encouraged to write in your mother tongue, and let yourself be inspired by your personal connection to Earth. What is it she makes you marvel at? What do you love about our planet? What part of her do you wish for everyone to sense?


You can adopt my melody or create your own, as long as it matches the chord scheme. This you can download here.
There is an instrumental verse available as a tool to create (and record) your own. If you would like to use this, please send me an email.

When you’re ready, please send your lyrics and/or a recording of your verse to, so that I can learn it.

When the time is ripe, I will collect your verses and record a new, expanded version of Mother. So that she may keep growing.


Are words not your favourite language?

I would absolutely love to hear from fellow musicians who feel drawn to enhance this song with me. Please share your instrumental magic!

And if you feel called to contribute in any other way, you are more than welcome to contact me as well.

I am open to many kinds of (musical) cocreations.


Thank you so much for participating in this ode to Earth.
