Blessed be the light of day and the Lord who
sends it to us.
In this new day we give you thanks Omnipotent
God, Master of the Universe.
Your divine kindness has brought us out of the
into the light of a new day. Everything in the
world is filled with your glory.
Because of you, flowers bloom, fields turn green,
trees produce fruits and we receive the rays
of the sun.
Birds in the branches bless you as well as the fish
in the ponds.
Bless us great God and guide our steps,
so that we may forever abide by your holy
law. In this new day, we give you thanks
Omnipotent God, Master of creation.
