Almighty Lord, if we offer you a devoted mind and heart, you will offer to us every blessing on earth and in heaven.
Atharva Veda (c. 1500 BC)
You grant our deepest wishes. You give food to the body and peace to the soul. You look upon us with the love of a mother for her children.
You created this beautiful earth all around us. And in every plant and animal, every tree and bird, your spirit dwells.
You have revealed yourself to me, infusing my soul with the know- ledge that you are the source of all blessing.
And so I sing your praises day and night. I who am feeble, glorify you who are powerful. I who am nothing, devote myself to you who are everything.
