I lift up my eyes to you

Sunset, why let others be your song? Come, bless the boundaries of earth. Send signs of wonder to the wind. Give the land a legacy.

In the heavens of your birth, give depth a name. Look kindly on all waters that sing to the greatest joys.

Govern all creatures who look up to your great light. Old people with smiles for each age they pass through. Children in the midst of frontiers.

Celebrate growing strong. Probe the works of quiet summits. Let lofty ambition be a child in its mother's arms.

I lift my eyes to you, who have your home over all my days. Where you come to rest bursts into a hymn of delight.
