O Lord of Heaven, Earth, and Sea
The beauty of your Creation is beyond expression.
Beasts of the forest roam the hillsides with untold majesty.
Towering trees lift their branches in testimony of your power, sheltering tiny birds within their leaves
The restless ocean waves break ceaselessly onto sandy beaches, but must ever recede at your command,
“Thus far and no farther.”
So, for this I praise you, O Lord!
When the relentless tide of evil threatens to overwhelm and destroy my faith, you declare its bounds, and force it back by your command,
“Thus far and no farther!”
