Morning magnificat

Alice Claire Mansfield (1996)

Good morning,
O great and bounteous
Lord and Giver of Life!

I rejoice to be your child.
I salute your majesty.
I delight in your surprises.
I adore your loveliness.
I marvel at your wisdom.
I contemplate your mystery.
I exult in your goodness.
I reverence your strength.
I revel in your glory.
I praise your beauty.
I give thanks that
I belong to you
and you belong to me.
Our communion transcends
time and space
and defies death.
Let me choose you anew this day
that I may serve you
with joy and gratitude
all the days of my life.
