Nighttime Praise

Stand up, o my soul!

Rise to your feet and do not be drowsy

for the LORD is to be praised in the moonlight!

Lift up your hands

and tap with your feet.

Tune in to the song of the stars

and add your voice to the celestial hymn.

Do not whisper just because it is dark;

be bold with your harmonies tonight

for the nighttime is a hallowed space

within heaven and earth,

where trees dance

and wise owls preach,

where prophets dream

and women rest their worries.

Lift up your hands in this holy place

to bless the LORD who moves in shadows.

And may the Maker of galaxies,

the Giver of visions,

bless you

o my soul!

(on Psalm 134)
