O Lord, my God, you made the sky and seas,
mountains, the moon and stars. You filled the earth
with birds and beasts, flowers and fish and trees.
Compared to these, how can one life have worth?
Before my birth you knew me. In the days
I spent in womb, you knit and formed ev’ry
organ, muscle, each limb and bone. Your ways
are just and pure and good, you set us free.
And now I stand in awe as you create
new life within my wife. Each day he grows
bigger, stronger; our joy swells as we wait
to hold and know our son, to let love show.
He shall be raised to know and love your ways.
Honor, glory to God with all our praise.
