O God, let me rise to the edges of time and open my life to your eternity;
    let me run to the edges of space and gaze into your immensity;
    let me climb through the barriers of sound and pass into your silence;
    and then, in stillness and silence, let me adore You,

who are Life – Light – Love – without beginning and without end,
    the Source – the Sustainer – the Restorer – the Purifier – of all that is;
    the Lover who has bound earth to heaven by the beams of a cross;
    the Healer who has renewed a dying race by the blood of a chalice;
    the God who has taken man into your glory by the wounds of sacrifice;

God . . . God . . . God . . . Blessed be God.
Let me adore you.
