Prayers of Praise

If my lips could sing as many songs as there are waves in the sea,
If my tongue could sing as many hymns as there are ocean billows,
If my mouth filled the whole firmament with praise,
If my face shone like the sun and moon together,
If my hands were to hover in the sky like powerful eagles
And my feet ran across mountains as swiftly as the deer;
All that would not be enough to pay you fitting tribute,
O Lord my God.
Jewish prayer
All is silent in the still and soundless air,
I fervently bow
To my almighty God.
Hsieh Ping-hsin, China
Creator of the universe, watch over us and keep us in the light of your presence.
May our praise continually blend with that of all creation, until we come together to the eternal joys which you promise in your love,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Celtic prayer
May none of God's wonderful works keep silence, night or morning.
Bright stars, high mountains, the depths of the seas, sources of rushing rivers:
May all these break into song as we sing to Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
May all the angels in the heavens reply: Amen! Amen! Amen!
Power, praise, honour, eternal glory to God, the only Giver of Grace.
Amen! Amen! Amen!
A hymn from the 3rd century
