Fulness of the Earth

The fulness of the earth is yours!
The beasts of the field and the fowls of the air
And that which climbeth upon the trees
And walketh upon the earth.
And all good things which come of the earth
In the season thereof
Are made for the benefit and the use of man,
Both to please the eye and to gladden the heart—
For food and for raiment,
For taste and for smell,
To strengthen the body and to enliven the soul.
And it pleaseth God that He hath given
All these things unto man,
For unto this end were they made
To be used with judgment.
