We praise you, O God; we acclaim you as Lord; * all creation worships you, the Father everlasting. To you all angels, all the powers of heaven, * the cherubim and seraphim, sing in endless praise: Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of power and might,TE DEUM LAUDAMUS
We Praise You, O God
For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life.2 Corinthians 2:15, 16
A Prayer for a New Day
May the Lord who made this rose, cultivate the depleted spiritual soil of fallen Man, beautify the mosaic of Christian communities across the land, and diffuse the sweet saving fragrance of Christ Jesus to those otherwise incapable of sensing the divine. By the incomparable merits and compassionate mercy of the GOD who transforms thorns unto blooms, and a cross of suffering into an instrument of healing, I pray. Amen.M. A. Milton
