A song of wonder rises within our hearts
as we behold the works of your hand, O Creator:
May our prayers rise to you on the breath of morning.
Your love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens,
yet we have sinned and strayed in willfulness and pride:
forgive, O Merciful One, forgive.
Grant us wisdom to discern your loving will in our lives,
that we may hold fast to your truth.
Gather within your embrace
all who call out in fear, sorrow, or pain,
and extend the awning of your blessing
over those we now name, as we humbly pray.
