All praise from earth to heaven we give you,

God our source and our ending, the power of love,

for in you the cosmos breathes life,

there is change and growth and infinite potential,

the glories of the created order have emerged

and you have given us humans freedom

to think and choose and make.

 

All praise from earth to heaven we give you,

God our source and our ending, the power of love,

for from you and in you appeared Jesus Christ,

the living picture of your purpose,

the announcer of your kingdom,

who rolled back death and evil for us

and took our humanity into your very godhead.

 

All praise from earth to heaven we give you,

God our source and our ending, the power of love,

for you are the inextinguishable fountain of life,

that Holy Spirit in whom

the energy of love becomes effective,

bringing wonders into being that were not there before.

 

All praise from earth to heaven we give you,

God our source and our ending, the power of love.

 

May your praise be the wellspring of our lives,

now and always.
