Morning Prayer


In the wondrous blending of sounds, it is your call we hear. In the harmony of many voices, in the sublime beauty of music, in the glory of the works of great composers. All true beauty has the power to draw the soul towards you, O God, and make it sing in ecstasy: Alleluia!

Morning Prayer


How filled with sweetness are those whose thoughts dwell on you. Where you are not, hearts are smitten with sadness; nature, and life itself, becomes sorrowful. Where you are, the soul is filled with abundance, and its song resounds like a torrent of life: Alleluia!

Morning Prayer


O Lord, how lovely it is to be your guest. All nature murmurs mysteriously, breathing the depths of your tenderness. Blessed are you, O mother earth, O reflected loveliness of the land where beauty grows not old, and where rings out the cry: Alleluia!

Morning Prayer


Everlasting King, your will for our salvation is full of power. Your right arm controls the course of human life. We thank you for all your mercies seen and unseen: For eternal life, for the heavenly joys of the kingdom which is to be. Glory to you, O God, from age to age!
