To Handle Glory

To Handle Glory

A prayer by John Philip Newell, a Scottish poet, scholar and peacemaker.

Taken from the prayer book Sounds of the Eternal: A Celtic Psalter.

That your glory rises in the morning sun and sparkles off flowing waters,

that the glory of the everlasting world shines in this world

growing from the ground and issuing forth in every creature,

that glory can be handled, seen and known

in the matter of earth and human relationships

and in the most ordinary matters of daily life,

assure us again this day, O God, assure us again this day.


I love...the place where your glory abides.
— Psalm 26:8
