O LORD, how manifold are Your works! In wisdom have You made them all; the earth is full of Your creatures. Here is the sea, great and wide, which teems with creatures innumerable, living things both small and great. There go the ships, and Leviathan, which You formed to play in it. These all look to You, to give them their food in due season. When You give it to them, they gather it up; when You open Your hand, they are filled with good things. When You hide Your face, they are dismayed; when You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust. When You send forth Your Spirit, they are created, and You renew the face of the ground.
LORD, how the earth, sea and the air above teem with life. In all shapes and sizes, all displaying Your love of creating. As I dug in the garden yesterday, the earthworms were busy converting the vegetable waste that I was burying into rich, black, friable soil to nourish a new bounty of crops. You are opening Your hand to fill us with good things; You were renewing the face of the ground.
Praise You, LORD, God Almighty.
