Litany

By Jacob Trapp

Worship

To worship is to stand in awe under a heaven of stars,
Before a flower, a leaf in sunlight, or a grain of sand.

Response

To worship is to be silent, receptive, before a tree astir in the wind, or the passing shadow of a cloud.

To worship is to work with dedication and with skill;
It is to pause from work and listen to a strain of music.

Response

To worship is to sing with the singing beauty of the Earth;
It is to listen through a storm to the still small voice within.

Worship is loneliness seeking communion:
It is a thirsty land crying out for rain.

Response

Worship is a kindred fire within our hearts;
It moves through deeds of kindness and through acts of love.

Worship is the mystery within us,
Reaching out to the mystery beyond.

Response

It is an inarticulate silence yearning to speak;
It is the window of the moment open to the sky of the eternal.
