Praise the Beloved!
Praises be to You in earth’s sanctuary;
praises be to You
in the mighty firmament!
Praise the mighty works of Love;
Praise the glory and extol the
greatness of Love Divine!
Give praise with trumpets;
give praise with lute and harp!
Give praise with timbral and dance;
give praise with strings and reed!
Give praise with booming drums;
give praise with crashing cymbals!
Let everything that breathes
praise the Beloved with their lives!
May it be so now
and forever! Amen.
(Psalms for Praying, Nan C. Merrill)
