The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of His hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
Without speech or language,
without a sound to be heard,
their voice has gone out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens He has pitched
a tent for the sun.
Like a bridegroom emerging from his chamber,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course,
it rises at one end of the heavens
and runs its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth.
The Law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul;
the testimony of the LORD is trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The precepts of the LORD are right,
bringing joy to the heart;
the commandments of the LORD are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the LORD is pure,
the judgments of the LORD are true,
being altogether righteous.
They are more precious than gold,
than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the comb.
By them indeed Your servant is warned;
in keeping them is great reward.
Who can discern his own errors?
Cleanse me from my hidden faults.
Keep Your servant also from willful sins;
may they not rule over me.
Then I will be blameless
and cleansed of great transgression.
May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing in Your sight,
O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

O LORD, You who created the heavens and the earth and all the wonders therein that manifest Your glory in all its perfection – look down upon us, Yahweh, Your people. In all Your righteous justice, search our hearts, LORD, convict us, teach us and lead us to being a people of love. We cannot do it all on our own. We need You, Father.
Soften our hearts, LORD, that we may play our part in the restoration of Your world as You planned it. Thank You that You came to our world as a human, one of us, to atone for the sin and destruction we brought about, and strengthen us, LORD, that we may share the glorious work of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, so that Your kingdom may come and Your perfect plan for the heavens and earth may reach its fruition.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
