you adorn your creation with splendor and beauty
and you fashion human lives in your image and likeness.
Awaken in every heart a spirit of reverence for the work of your hands,
and renew among your people a readiness to nurture and sustain
your precious gift of human life.
Through Christ our Lord.

O LORD, our Lord, how awesome is your name through all the earth!
You have set your majesty above the heavens!
Out of the mouths of babes and infants
you have drawn a defense against your foes,
to silence the enemy and avenger.
When I see your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and stars that you set in place--
what are humans that you are mindful of them,
mere mortals that you care for them?
Yet you have made them little less than a god,
crowned them with glory and honor.
You have given them rule over the works of your hands,
put all things at their feet:
all sheep and oxen, even the beasts of the field,
the birds of the air, the fish of the sea,
and whatever swims the paths of the seas.
O LORD, our Lord,
how awesome is your name through all the earth!
