Prayers From The Sisters

A Harvest Prayer by

Sr. Maureen Niedermeyer, osb

How blest, O Lord, are the works of your hands!

The heaves above and the below,

All creation sings of your glory!

 

The earth reveals your eternal presence:

apple trees heavy with juicy fruit,

fields ripe with waving grain,

wild blue breakers crashing on our shores,

raucous cries of the gulls,

mammoth beasts of the deep,

red-breasted robins on their perch,

multi-colored vegetables climbing up towards the warmth of the sun.

 

For all of these blessings, we thank you, Lord!

 

The music and beauty of all creation shows your extravagant love!

Continue to sing on in me and in all that you have fashioned.
