Morning

Glory to you O God of the morning
God of hope and of new beginnings
God of resurrection and life

Glory to you in your ceaseless self giving
in your tireless creating
in your forgiving and healing

Glory to you in the day ahead
in the hours unspent to be lavished upon me,
in the vibrant lives through whom you greet me,
in all that awaits me,
and in the grace that will sustain me,
Glory to you O God.

Glory to you dwelling in deep darkness
To you all night is as day,
Glory to you in your waiting and knowing
in your weeping and aching
in your watching and singing
Glory to you O God of the morning.
