We praise you, Lord!
We give thanks to you with our whole heart!
Great are your works, full of honor and majesty
and studied by all who delight in them.
The works of your hands are faithful and just.
Your precepts are trustworthy.
Our reverence for you is the beginning of wisdom.
You are to be praised forever.
from whom comes every good and perfect gift,
we praise you for the wisdom, power, and love
displayed in the natural universe and in humanity,
whom you have placed within it to care for it and nurture it.
All glory to you, omniscient God!
Light of the world, we praise you for being the eternal truth.
All glory to you, Christ our teacher!
Revealer of the deep things of God,
we praise you for your gifts of awe and wonder
which lead us on the path of true wisdom.
All glory to you, Holy Spirit!
