1The heavens are telling the glory of God, and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
2Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge.
3There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard; 4yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In the heavens he has set a tent for the sun, 5which comes out like a bridegroom from his wedding canopy, and like a strong man runs its course with joy.
6Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them; and nothing is hidden from its heat.
Reflect and Pray:
One of the great ways for us to experience God is in the beauty of creation. What aspects of creation speak most powerfully to you of God? Pray with me that we do all we can to preserve God’s creation and not exploit or destroy it. Pray also that we will rejoice in what God has given us and act as faithful stewards of that which has been entrusted to our care.
