Galaxies Tell of Your Might (Little Canticle 127)

Galaxies tell of your might;

Nebulae pour out your glory;

Stars and planets dance to your rhythm and little moons rejoice in their rapid circuits.

All the Universe moves to your command, O God of the land, the sea and the skies of a billion, billion orbs.

And we, your people, praise you amidst your Godly vastness.

Ah, Lord, What are women and men that you should be mindful of us? And who am I that You should pour such infinite love upon me?

O gracious God, we thank you for your wonderful love for us, showered upon us by your Holy Spirit, when there is such a vast array in the seen and unseen heavens, all of which are your blessed and glorious terrain.

Creator God, Redeemer God, our minds reel at the vastness of it all as we ponder the amazing paradoxes we see in you and in your creation.

Praise be to you who is at the heart of it all; who is, who ever has been and ever will be.  Amen

Ten thousand billion suns - A scintilla of God’s Universe
It is currently thought that the Universe has at least 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars! Hence the use of the word ‘scintilla’ for a mere ten thousand billion.

This beautiful head of roses in our garden, which are giving off a delightful perfume in the morning sun, seems a fitting picture to link to the sonnet 'Evolution and Beauty'. Let the picture take you there. It is a surprise because it is growing high on a bush of otherwise pure yellow roses: amazing!
