Praise the Creator–
the One who made in intricate detail
each petal, each speck of life that lives and
moves on this blue-green ball.
The tiniest spider – a dot with legs – and
the farthest-flung star, spinning through space,
came from your hand.
Praise the Sustainer–
as all things change and grow old
you are the same.
Our life is a breath, our pride a shadow,
but you remain.
