God's Presence Permeating Everyday Life
You have graced the sky with the light
of your glory, O Lord,
And breathed your goodness
into all that surrounds me.
You have enveloped all of creation with your
uncreated Beauty, O God,
And crowned the year with your bounty,
meeting my every need!
Please open my eyes today, O Lord,
to the wonder of your works all around me.
May I see your fingerprints on the events
of my everyday life.
Let me appreciate your goodness and your care for me,
cloaked in the garb of the mundane.
And may I spy your divine presence
permeating the rhythm of my daily life!
Today my heart will exult in your brilliance,
permeating the events that seem so small.
My mouth will declare your praises,
for you pervade the space that surrounds me.
My whole being will bless you all day long, O Lord,
for your presence fills the heavens and the earth!
