Using the song: It’s a simple song for thanksgiving, or really anytime: a rousing hymn to help us celebrate our place in the whole, and feel the healing of the planet happening within us, too.

A song like this, with lots of repetition, gives the singers the opportunity to get into it more whole heartedly. To teach it the first time, I usually sing it once all through, a capella. then teach one line at a time, call/echo. From there, close is good enough, in my experience.
