Glory be to you, O God, for the gift of life unfolding through those who have gone before me.
Glory be to you, O God, for your life planted within my soul and in every soul coming into the world.
Glory be to you, O God, for the grace of new beginnings placed before me in every moment and encounter of life.
Glory, glory, glory for the grace of new beginnings in every moment of life.
(John Philip Newell, Celtic Benediction; Morning and Night Prayer, 61-65)
