Meditation

Bernie Mullen

CD: Gentle Sounds

Prayer:
As the sunflowers turn to light So Lord, I turn to thee
As the birds sing songs of love Lord I move in love with thee
As the sun gives shadow in its light Lord I give my shadow self to thee.
In the gentle music of creation's adoration With my being I worship Thee.
Sing in me your songs of love and peace Make in me your home of harmony and grace. Let my prayer rise up and gather wonder
At your faithfulness
At your mercy
At your tender care for me.
Lord accept my praise with all creation I rejoice and let you dance in me ...

Magnificat:
For our God of Dance Divine For Love most constant
For love most pure
For love's creation
For the beauty of the earth of the heavens
For the mystery of all that was, that is and that will be ...

Meditation:
We sit in contentment with this last painting of the Magnificat series. There is nothing more to be said. We feel we need just allow the joy of all that God is and does flow into our being with the sweet music of life and in the company of all creation. We surrender to the Light and allow Radiance to shine through us so that all may share the bliss of being a part of Love's intensity: of all that moves and has being of all that evolves into heaven ...

Lyrics:
For the beauty of the earth, For the glory of the skies,
For the love from which our birth Over and around us lies;
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise.
For the beauty of each hour Of the day and of the night
Hill and vale, and tree and flower, Sun and moon, and starts of light; Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise.
For the joy of ear and eye,
For the heart and mind's delight, For the mystic harmony,
Linking sense to sound and sight; Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise.
For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child, Friends on earth and friends above, For all the gentle thoughts and mild; Lord of all, the thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise.

For thy church, that evermore, Lifteth holy hands above, Offering up on every shore Her pure sacrifice of love; Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise.
For thyself, best gift Divine, To the world so freely given,
For that great, great love of thine Peace on earth, and joy in heaven; Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our grateful hymn of praise.
Amen!
