Ah, Beautiful God,
you are the stillness of the morning
before the robins wake or the dew lifts,
just as the sky is warming with the sun’s color;
and I step into your sleepy quiet
to breathe deeply and savor the holy harmony.
Let the thoughts of my heart and the words of my tongue
be true to your untroubled spaciousness today,
greeting and welcoming others in
to this sweet peace.
