Prayer of Gratitude for the Earth:
For the marvellous grace of your creation, we pour out our thanks to you God. For sun and moon and stars, For rain and dew and winds, For winter cold and summer heat. We praise you God for mountains and hills, For springs and valleys, For rivers and seas. We praise you God, for plants growing in earth and in water, For life inhabiting lakes and seas, for life creeping in soils and land, For creatures living in wetlands and waters, For lifeline flying above earth and sea, For beasts dwelling in woods and fields. How many and how wonderful are your works, O Lord.
