This precious web of life on earth
Inheritance of all at birth
Has every blessing freely given to you
It’s a fragile, holy ground
A treasure to be handed down
Our overflowing hearts sing hallelujah
Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.

On March 20 the Climate Flash Choir performed at the San Antonio City Council in an effort to persuade the Council to vote in favor of the City’s Climate Action and Adaptation Plan. This performance showed that music is capable of breaking through the inertia of government officials and of inspiring people to find their voices in striving for climate justice and sustainable earth. Dana Clark is a singer-songwriter and a long-time member of First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Antonio. She has written words to “Hallelujah for the Earth,” to Leonard Cohen’s music; “The Times They Are A-Changing on the Earth,” to music by Bob Dylan; and “Simply the Environment.”

“I believe songs are powerful tools in our struggle to create a better world, and I would be thrilled to know my songs are out in the world working for us all.” Dana Clark
