Morning Prayer

WHEN I look at the sun, then I think God's spirit,

When I move my hand, then lives in me God's soul,

When I take a step, then stirs in me God's will.

And when I behold a man, then God's soul lives in him.

And so too it lives in father and mother,

In animal and flower, in tree and stone.

Never can fear come near to me,

If I think — God's spirit;

If I live — God's soul;

If I bestir — God's will.
