Doxology 133, from Daily Prayer for All Seasons*

May none of God’s wonderful works keep silence,
     night or morning.
Bright stars, high mountains, the depths of the seas,
     sources of rushing rivers:
May all these break into song as we sing
     to Creator, Savior and Holy Spirit.
May all the angels in the heavens reply:
     Amen! Amen! Amen!
Power, praise, honor and eternal glory to God,
     the only giver of grace.
     Amen! Amen! Amen!
