A Morning Prayer

"Lord, open our lips, and our mouths shall proclaim your praise." 

Don't let me steal or claim any of your glory for myself.  
As the birds sing their pre-dawn song, 
beckoning morning to come, 
thanking and praising you 
for the day that hasn't yet broken the horizon, 
may I have faith and hope in what is to come, 
singing your praises, 
trusting your goodness 
all the while.

Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
Serve the Lord with gladness:
come before his presence with singing.
Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands.

Know ye that the Lord he is God:
it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands.

For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth to all generations.
His love and mercy endure forever.
