I watch this morning for the light that the darkness has not overcome. I watch for the fire

that was in the beginning

and that burns still

in the brilliance of the rising sun.

I watch for the glow of life

that gleams in the growing earth and glistens in sea and sky.

I watch for your light, O God,

in the eyes of every living creature and in the ever living flame

of my own soul.

If the grace of seeing

were mine this day

I would glimpse You in all that lives. Ground me the grace of seeing

this day.

Grant me the grace of seeing.
