I Praise You, Lord!
By Lucia K Haase
Oh, Lord, I praise you as the new-born day
encompassing the earth in holy light;
I shine with praise the same and very way
the stars so boldly glimmer in the night.
I lift my arms, Oh Lord, exalting you
just as the branches of the growing trees-
just as the new-found seasons that renew,
unfolding faithful order, midst the breeze.
Oh Lord, I praise you with all of my being-
oh you, who watches over all mankind;
I praise you for my given way of seeing,
just how within us, Lord, you are entwined.
You are the one…the Great I Am, adored-
all prayers and praise to you, My Precious Lord!!!
‘Praise the Lord. Praise, O servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord.
Let the name of the Lord be praised, both now and forevermore.
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
the name of the Lord is to be praised.
