We extol you, O eternal God, for the magnificent works of your wisdom:
For it is you who dispatch the dawn to its post and enthrone the morning in all its glory,
and in your bountiful mercy you light up the earth and those who dwell on it with the constant, recurring light of the sun.
As even the smallest creatures welcome the day and its blessings, so let us welcome it by praising you for showing us the light of your face once more.
Throughout this day, give us the words to thank you for your word, for your peace, and for your Holy Spirit,
and let us always be mindful of your holy will and your divine designs.
For you are , indeed, our God, and we give you glory, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: now and forever, and unto ages of Ages. Amen.
