And my mouth shall proclaim your praise.

O Sovereign God, from the caverns of the earth to theheights of the hills, all creation proclaims your glory. Let us join the song of praise, that we may live this day rejoicing in all your works, through Christ our Lord.
or, after Psalm 100

For a quiet evening and safety this night:
Come, Lord Jesus!
