The earth is round, but heaven is rounder;
The earth is green, but heaven is greener;
The earth bears fruit, but heaven bears more;
The earth is full of light, but heaven is light;
The earth is thus like heaven, but alas not quite;
Heaven is an eternal and merciful delight.
Why does my soul shiver?
Reaching out into the night smog
Sensing the terror of rain and fog
Feelings of sheer agony and fear.
But why do I always fear?
For beauty is nearby from here:
The river flowing, as weeping tears
Crying out across the cascading weir!
Good Morning Creator
Well-Spring of Life
You are my Master.
I grow in love for you
Your Word was made true
Compassionate, beloved, multiplied.
Good Day also to The Son
Loving Jesus, daily bread wholesome
The Body of my breast.
Fed like the four-thousand
I offer your service returned
Today, make it something profound.
Of us, in service,
