As the morning breezes murmur their praise,
harmonizing with branch and leaf,
let us rise to give thanks to our Creator.
Holy One, accept our prayers and praises
as we lift our hearts to You.
Beloved Savior, may we turn to you anew
as you call us to the abundant table of your fellowship;
may we be clothed by your gospel of justice
and work diligently
to lay the foundation of the Beloved Community.
Come, Holy Spirit, extend your light and truth,
that we may be enlightened and sanctified
to walk with integrity
and bear the gospel within our lives.
Lord Jesus, Shepherd of Our Souls,
enfold us within the embrace of your blessing,
and tenderly draw near to those for whom we pray.
