Demo: 

God van Grond-Marthie Nel Hauptfleisch-Woman On Fire

Liner Notes: 

Well my God is everywhere- especially when I look at nature around me and try and grow a vegetable garden(when I forget to harvest He will throw a lemon at me from the tree...nudge-nudge, wink-wink)

English:
God of Land / My God lives

Choir: My God, My Creator, My Master Lives
In me, around me, close
My God, My Creator, My Master lives
In me, around me, close
My God jumps out of every bush
behind a rock to be here-
nice cuddling in to my heart come - He sits close/nestles in
My God lives, He is awake
He breathes in and out; in and out
In and out

I have a Land God
Who pushes flowers up
from pebbles
in soft apricot colors
and yellow in the morning sun

My God is a tree god
who let's in orange a mandarin grow
on hang low the lowest branches
and lemons in the soil
He plows back

My God is an Air God
Who moves the wind
and the clouds he gathers
Wet the earth and then again
let it dry

My God is a sun god
Who- on time every day
let's the new day break open
Shiies in creases on the mountain
And kiss the valleys deeply and deeply

Choir: My God, My Creator, My Master Lives
In me, around me, close
My God, My Creator, My Master lives
In me, around me, close
My God jumps out from behind every bush
behind a rock to here-
nice cuddling in my heart nestling in.
My God lives, He is awake
He breathes in and out; in and out
In and out

Lyrics: 

God van Grond/My God leef

Koor: My God, My Skepper, My Meester leef
In my, om my, naby
My God, My Skepper, My Meester leef
In my, om my, naby
My God spring uit elke bossie uit
agter ‘n klop tot hier-
lekker snoesig in my hart kom sit Hy.
My God leef, Hy is wakker
Hy haal asem, in en uit; in en uit
In en uit

Ek het ‘n Grondgod
Wat blomme stoot
uit klippertjies
En sag in appelkoos
en geel straal in die oggenson

My God is ‘n boomgod
wat naartjies oranje
aan laag die laagste takke hang
en suurlemoene in die grond in
terugploeg

My God is ‘n LugGod
Wat die wind beweeg
en die wolke versamel
Die aarde natspat en dan weer
laat droograak

My God is ‘n songod
Wat op tyd elke dag
die nuwe dag oopbreek
in kreukels op die berg
En die valleie diep en innig soen

Koor: My God, My Skepper, My Meester leef
In my, om my, naby
My God, My Skepper, My Meester leef
In my, om my, naby
My God spring uit elke bossie uit
agter ‘n klop tot hier-
lekker snoesig in my hart kom sit Hy.
My God leef, Hy is wakker
Hy haal asem, in en uit; in en uit
In en uit

Another big powerful lyric. So pretty and emotional. I didnt even read the english in detail, just let it wash over me.
