Author of life,
Architect of creation,
Artist of earth,
Your works declare Your Holy Name.
Vast spaces of brilliance and grandeur.
You created pallet and paint,
Color and hue,
Shape and form,
Abundant and beautiful,
Glorious and majestic,
Full of mystery and wonder.
Blessed are You,
With divine love You created a world of splendor.
