The Beauty of all creations...

(Ir. Maria da Graça,SSpS timorense, da Congregação Missionária Serva do Espírito Santo, estudante da Teologia no Brasil)

O God, we thank you for this earth, our home;
For the wide sky and the blessed sun,
For the salt sea and the running water,
For the everlasting hills
And the never-resting winds,
For trees and the common grass underfoot.
We rejoice in the feel of the snow,
And smell the breath of the spring.
Grant us a heart wide open to all this beauty;
And save our souls from being so blind
That we pass unseeing
When even the common thornbush
Is aflame with your glory,
O God our creator,
Who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
(Lisboa, 12.11.2010)
