Litanies & Prayers

The earth is satisfied

A litany for worship inspired by Psalm 104

by Ken Sehested

Worthy, worthy the One who conceived the earth and gave birth to bears and basil and beatitudes alike.

The earth is satisfied with the fruit of your work!

At the sound of your Name the trees rejoice, for you are clothed with honor and clad in beauty.

The earth is satisfied with the fruit of your work!

From the earth’s rich soil our souls emerge. With creation’s Breath our lungs are filled.

The earth is satisfied with the fruit of your work!

Even as the envoys of peace weep, when the rocks tremble and the ground itself mourns, say aloud: God is worth the trouble!

The earth is satisfied with the fruit of your work!

So now, every hill and habitation, every honey bee and human heart, rejoice and give thanks. For the One who set the ocean’s tide, Who rides the wind with wings astride, shall never abide the tumult of pride.

The earth is satisfied with the fruit of your work!
