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 collecting 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. 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 notice?


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. This will soon be dowloadable from my website too.


When you’re ready, please send your lyrics and/or a recording of your verse to

I will collect all of your verses in a new, expanded version of Mother.


Not a songwriter? I would also love to hear from fellow musicians who would like to enhance this growing song together!

If you wish to contribute in any other way, you are also very welcome to contact me. I am open to all kinds of (musical) cocreations.


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