Creation Prayer

Lord, thou hast provided language,
proffered principle, line upon line,
to reveal creation’s mysteries.
May I arrange thought and phrase
into a world, glorious and beautiful 
as Earth newly formed 
before time began.
Organized, may my words
ascend hill and mountain,
shimmer rivers and springs,
flourish in branch and flower,
gallop across grasslands,
and cause lights of heaven to appear,
that Thy children
may glory in Thy goodness,
worship Thee in green glades,
and fill the skies with songs of praise.
