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.
