L: Bless the LORD, O my soul, O LORD my God, you are very great.

C: You are clothed with honor and majesty,

L: wrapped in light as with a garment.

C: You stretch out the heavens like a tent,

L: you set the beams of your chambers on the waters, you make the clouds your chariot,

C: you ride on the wings of the wind.

L: You set the earth on its foundations,

C: so that it shall never be shaken.

L: O LORD, how manifold are your works!

C: In wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. Praise the Lord!

Creator God, you are wrapped in light as a garment, clothed with honor and majesty. Enlighten us with true faith and humble obedience that seeks to serve others in your name. Amen.
