Praise to the Eternal Water of Life
Who spoke the Great and turbulent Deep into existence,
And Whose Spirit hovered above,
Embracing it as it collapsed –
Pulled in by its own gravitational force.
Praise to the Eternal Flame of Love
Whose creative passion lit the first thermonuclear light of the cosmos,
Turning mass into energy, and energy into mass,
Sending shock waves throughout the Deep
And fusing nuclei to synthesise the heavier elements.
Praise to the Eternal Wind of Inspiration
Whose Breath blew matter across stretching space-time,
Cooling and condensing it into the stellar jewels of galactic crowns,
And Whose mysterious dark energy
beckons us journey deeper into the wonders of Creation.
Praise to the Eternal Ground of All Being
Who took earth, fashioned it and gave it life
In all its delightful and myriad forms;
Who stepped into it, lived, died,
rose and ascended to fill it once more.
Praise to the Eternal Spirit of the Cosmos
Whose presence within all that is
Upholds it moment by moment,
From the tiniest building blocks
To galactic superclusters …
