 Eternal God, hallowed be your name.  Early in the morning, before we begin our work, we praise your glory.  Renew our bodies as fresh as the morning flowers. Open our inner eyes, as the sun casts new light upon the darkness.  Deliver us from all captivity.  Like the birds of the sky, give us wings of freedom to begin a new journey.  As a mighty stream running continuously, restore justice and freedom day by day.  We thank you for the gift of this morning, and a new day to work with you.  Amen.
