Affirmations / Covenants / Doxologies: “Praise the sun, the moon, the stars

Praise the sun, the moon, the stars,
Praise the ant, the tree, the shining leaf.
Praise every child large and small,
Praise the one within us all.
Praise the swimmers, crawlers, and creepers.
Praise the flower and the winding weed,
Praise each blade of grass and every dewdrop.
Praise dark moist earth.
Praise rock, sand, and shoal.
Praise wind -- nature's breath.
Praise those with fin, fur, and finger,
Praise the winged ones, the tiny ones,
and all the ones that live unseen.
Praise brightest morning and darkest night.
Praise the prickly and the unpopular.
Praise the crow's cry and the beggar's sigh.
Praise the dancers, the doers and the dreamers.
Praise those that give, those who love, and those who heal.
Praise to wanderers, weavers and seekers.
Praise sounds of thunder, crashing waves,
and shouts for justice.
Praise silence.
Praise spirit.
Praise all colors.
Praise all acts of compassion.
Praise all. Praise all. Praise all.
