Voices

Voices from above and from beneath,
Voices of creation, near and far,
Voices out of life and out of death,
Out of measureless space,
Sun, moon, star,
In oneness of contentment offering praise.

[Alleluia!]

 

Jubilant

Heaven and earth and sea jubilant,
Jubilant all things that dwell therein;
Filled to fullest overflow they chant,
Still roll onward, swell,
Still begin,
Never flagging praise interminable.

 

Et in Terra Pax

[Et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis.]

You who must fall silent in a while,
Chant thy sweetest, gladdest, best, at once;
Sun thyself today, keep peace and smile;
By love upward send
Orisons,
Accounting love thy lot and love thine end.
