Eternal God,
We say good morning to You.
Hallowed be Your name.
Early in the morning, before we begin our work
we praise your glory.
Renew our bodies as fresh as morning flowers.
Open our inner eyes, as the sun casts new light upon the
darkness which prevailed over the night.
Deliver us from all captivity.
Give us wings of freedom, like the birds in the sky,
to begin a new journey.
Restore justice and freedom as a mighty stream
running continuously as day follows day.
We thank you for the gift of this morning,
and a new day to work with You.

Masao Takenaka
