Prayer of Praise
(By St. Gregory Nazianzen, c.330-389)
You alone are unutterable,
form the time you created all things
that can be spoken of.
You alone are unknowable,
from the time you created all things
that can be known.
All things cry out about you;
those which speak,
and those which cannot speak.
All things honor you;
those which think,
and those which cannot think.
For there is one longing, one groaning,
that all things have for you …
All things pray to you that comprehend
and offer you a silent hymn.
In you, the One, all things abide,
and all things endlessly run to you
who are the end of all.
