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,
o my soul!
(on Psalm 134)
