In praise with creation

I am under the sky.  The birds are all silent.
But the frogs have begun singing their pleasure in all the waters
and in the warm, green places where the sunshine is wonderful.
Praise Christ, all you living creatures.
For Him you and I were created.
With every breath we love Him.
My psalms fulfill your dim unconscious song, O brothers in this wood.

Thomas Merton (1915 – 1968) American Catholic writer and Trappist monk


Let the heavens be glad, and the earth rejoice!
Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise!
Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy!
Let the trees of the forest sing for joy
