From eternity You are God.
In the beginning, from Your eternal Mind, there issued forth a word, and, in a manner that we know not how, you created space, and all that was, is, and will be within that space until the end of space.
You created time, and all that was, is, and will be within that time until the end of time.
You brought forth the entirety of the cosmos, vast and virtually infinite, whether we look far at the mysteries of the stars above us, look close at the mysteries of the atoms below us, look about at the mysteries in the world around us, and look deep within at the mysteries within us.
In all these we find in some measure your Eternal Law.
All these tell us of your Vastness and Infinity.
All these You brought forth from nothing so that You could share your Life with us.
It was then that You stamped Yourself on your creation, with the promulgation of the Eternal Law, so that all things come from You as their source, find in You their model of their being, look toward You for Your Providential care, and have You as their final end.
All these tell us of your order, your ratio.
All these tell us of your Providence.
All these tell us of your Justice.
All these tell us of your Mercy.
All these tell us of your Love.
All these tell us of You, God.
All these tell us we are not alone.
All these tell us we have You.
You are the Eternal Law, God, and we worship You and give You thanks for it.
You are the Law of the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars.
You are the Law of the Earth, the Seas and the Mountains.
You are the Law of the Trees, of the Wheat, and of the Grape.
You are the Law of the Fish and Mollusk.
You are the Law of the Insect and the Spider.
You are the Law of the Frog, the Lizard, and the Snake.
You are the Law of the Birds.
You are the Law of the Beasts.
You are the Law of Man, both wicked and good.
You are the Law of Man's soul, both the pure and the foul.
You are the Law of Man's body, both the clean and the dirty.
You are the Law of Angels, both wicked and good.
Give us the Grace so that we may sing with the Psalmist:
Praise ye the Lord from the heavens:Eternal Law:
Praise ye him in the high places.
Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.
Praise ye him, O sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars and light.
Praise him, ye heavens of heavens:
And let all the waters that are above the heavens praise the name of the Lord.
For he spoke, and they were made:
He commanded, and they were created.
He hath established them for ever, and for ages of ages:
He hath made a decree, and it shall not pass away.
Praise the Lord from the earth, ye dragons, and all ye deeps:
Fire, hail, snow, ice, stormy winds which fulfill his word:
Mountains and all hills, fruitful trees and all cedars:
Beasts and all cattle: serpents and feathered fowls:
Kings of the earth and all people:
Princes and all judges of the earth:
Young men and maidens:
Let the old with the younger, praise the name of the Lord:
For his name alone is exalted.
The praise of him is above heaven and earth:
And he hath exalted the horn of his people.
A hymn to all his saints: to the children of Israel,
A people approaching to him.
