New every morning is the blessing of our God:
let us sing our thanks and praise from our first waking thought.
Order our minds and wills for your service, O Lord,
and open our hearts to share the love of Christ.
Inspire us in the Spirit of Truth, Righteousness, and Peace
to follow Jesus in every step.
Let us see the holiness of God
reflected in each bloom and branch
and in each face we see today.
Almighty One, your mercies are unceasing:
fill us through thy grace with compassion and charity.
Lord Christ, heal us and guide us to abide in You,
and bless especially those we now name.
