Ancient Morning Praise

"And God said,
"Let there be light;
and there was light."
Genesis 1:3

Father, we praise Thee, now the night is over;
Active and watchful, stand we all before Thee;
Singing, we offer prayer and meditation:
Thus we adore Thee.

Monarch of all things, fit us for Thy mansions;
Banish our weakness, health and wholeness sending;
Bring us to heaven, where Thy saints united,
Joy without ending.

All holy Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Trinity blessed, send us Thy salvation;
Thine is the glory, gleaming and resounding
Through all creation.

The Cross on the Mountain
Thomas Kinkade

 Morning Prayer attributed to
Gregory the Great
Pope Gregorious of Rome
