Our help is in the name of the Lord
who is making the heavens and the earth.
Dear God, we thank you for all that is good,
for our creation and our humanity,
for the stewardship you have given us of the planet earth,
for the gifts of life and one another,
for your Love which is unbounded and eternal.
O Thou, most holy and beloved,
my Companion, my Unicorn, my Guide upon the Way.
