Antiphon (mantra) repeat quietly:
From sunrise to sunset your name shall be praised.
We give you praise, O God of Life;
both now and evermore we bless your name.
From east to west and north to south,
from sunrise to sunset may your name be praised.
You, O God, are the eternal light.
Your glory reaches higher than the heavens.
Who is like you, magnificent in holiness?
And yet you live so close within.
You raise the poor from their lowliness;
you lift the oppressed from the depths.
You give dignity to their lives,
a place of honor with all the faithful.
You renew and strengthen all that lives;
you make the empty heart content.
Pray the Prayer of Jesus (Our Father)
