O God, who sings through your creation

O God, who sings through your creation,
in the melody of its waters and the wind in the trees,
in the lilt of the songbird and the animal's call,
and who gave to David and all your musicians
psalms and songs to echo and hymn this beauty;
help us to find what is most creative in ourselves
so that we can sing and make music
that is worthy of all you give us,
and add to the glorious sound of praise
that rises from all your grateful creatures;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.           

(from Psalm 98)
