For the life that was in the beginning 

and is now, 

thanks be to You, O God.

For the life that is now 

and will always be 

thanks be to You.

For those who have gone before me

and the men and women of every nation,

for the vitality of children 

and earth’s life-forms still to be born 

thanks be to You.  In this great river of life 

that flows behind me and before me 

let me know that I am carried by you.

In this great river of life 

that flows around me and through me 

let me know that I carry You 

and can reverence You 

in all that has life…

Amen.
