A Blessing for the Elements

O God our Father,
We praise and bless you
For the water that falls from the skies above
To dance on the earth below,
For the chattering of streams,
The grumbling sounds of rivers over stones,
The long slow silence of the lakes,
The rhythmic heartswell of the seas,
Water is the lifeblood of the land,
And through it, these our children came to life.

Christ Kenneally
