Holy Mysteries

Bless the LORD, all people, and
praise God’s infinite wisdom.

We did not lay earth’s foundations
and we did not set the breadth of the sky.
We cannot call rain from the clouds
or command the lightening to strike.

But, O God, we have been stricken
here between earth and sky,
and we have been drowned
by the waters that birthed us.

Therefore we praise you in humility
because you can rebuke the mountain
yet you have not forgotten us.
You are served by wind and fire
yet you lived among us in service.

You meet the needs of the hungry lion
and you weep to know our wounds;
you conduct the chorus of morning stars
and you admonish our proud ambitions.

Surely no god is greater than our God,
who commands the worship of angels
yet is foolish in pursuit of love —
with all its suffering and strain and sacrifice.

Bless the LORD, all people, and
praise God’s infinite wisdom.

Amen.
