Morning Canticle: Te Deum

You are God 
Te Deum laudamus

You are God: we praise you;
You are the Lord: we acclaim you;
You are the eternal Father: all creation worships you.
To you all angels, all the powers of heaven,
Cherubim and Seraphim, sing in endless praise:
                   Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
                   heaven and earth are full of your glory.
The glorious company of apostles praise you.
The noble fellowship of prophets praise you.
The white-robed army of martyrs praise you.
Throughout the world the holy Church acclaims you;
                    Father, of majesty unbounded,
                    your true and only Son, worthy of all worship,
                    and the Holy Spirit, advocate and guide.
You, Christ, are the king of glory,
the eternal Son of the Father.
When you became man and set us free
you did not shun the Virgin's womb.
You overcame the sting of each
and opened the kingdom of heaven to all believers.
You are seated at God's right hand in glory.
We believe that you will come and be our judge.
                   Come then, Lord, and help your people,
                   bought with the price of your own blood,
                   and bring us with your saints
                   to glory everlasting.

Lovely picture, Penny. And I never knew Jesus had a blog. Perhap he would've if he could've. ;-)
Thank you, Mimi. Just checking to see if anyone was looking. ;-)

Maybe Jesus' writing in the sand that time was his version of a blog.

That's it! The writing in the sand!
