Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth;
break into song; sing praise.
With trumpets and the sound of the horn
shout with joy to the King, the LORD
God of all the nations, the wonders of your love and mercy can be seen the entire world over. Every human heart bears the dignity of being your unrepeatable creation. Give us today the courage to honor this truth in our work, our reflection and our conversation. Instill in our hearts the desire to care for and be in solidarity with all peoples. As we seek solutions to global issues, give us your vision and wisdom, you who see the world without its walls and borders, you whose kingdom is made manifest through justice and peace.
Give us the wisdom to be good leaders. Give us the patience to be good servants. Give us the love to be good neighbors. You, who have created us all, give us peace and blessing.
Let the sea and what fills it resound,
the world and those who dwell there.
Let the rivers clap their hands,
the mountains shout with them for joy,
Before the LORD who comes,
who comes to govern the earth,
To govern the world with justice
and the peoples with fairness.
