Cosmos’ nascent verse and voice–

Heavens, waters, creatures make

Diverse harmonies: Rejoice!


Praise the God whose counterpoint,

Weaves creation’s diverse tunes

Into one eternal hymn,

Bursting fear and yawning gloom.


When we gather this new day

As Christ’s body here on earth,

We join with the universe

Which sings now in endless mirth.


May we keep this Song alive

That stars sang in dawning years.

May our lives add consonance

To the music of the spheres.
