God

O God, I have stood
__in the shadow of mountains,
__at the brink of oceans,
__under the spread of clouds,
__by the foot of redwoods—
And I have learned of Your greatness.
O Lord, I have touched
__baby fingers,
__feathers of a canary,
__petals of a rose,
__lather from soap—
And I have been reminded of Your gentleness.
O Father, I have known
__true friendship,
__joys of love,
__concerned care,
__unrestricted consideration—
And I have thought of your goodness.
O great, gentle good God,
__do some good, gentle great thing
__today
__through me,
__that others too may know
__more of You,
________________I pray,
___________in Christ’s Name,
________________Amen.
