Praise God, all ye creatures …

All thy works shall praise thy name, in earth, and sky, and sea …

Where could I possibly go, Lord,  that your love would not be there, or the glory of your wisdom not burst forth in the magnificence of your creation?

Each morning as I awake, your symphony of trills and tweets flow from the trees through the window, announcing a new day, announcing with joy the endless wonder of your creation.

In the depths of the sea, creatures of splendid hues and colors, only now known by man, with many yet unseen, radiate in secret your glory.

And in the sky, clouds of many faces float hither and yon, seemingly aimless, but guided by your gentle hand.

On the earth, so many different plants and trees, so many different rocks and seas and streams, so many kinds of animals and birds, all standing fast or moving according to their nature – these only hint at the breadth of your divine imagination and majesty.

And as evening falls, the skies gradually darken into a comforting blanket, soothing the mind and heart, preparing us for rest, secure in your sustaining love.

Indeed, my Lord and my God, you create, sustain and direct all of your creation.

So, dear Lord, in your great mercy and goodness, please sustain and direct my wayward soul.
