In the beginning –   God.

A circle   never-ending.

A source never   failing.

A King never   corrupted.

A cup always full.

O God of endless   love:

You have formed us   for joy,

lavished your grace upon us,

made us heirs of   your promises.

We adore you.

From the beginning   – God.

A circle never-ending.

A source never failing.

A King never corrupted.

A cup always full.

Creator God, you   long for us all to be full and fulfilled,

reservoirs of your   life-giving love,

given to giving,   peace, content and free.

We give you   thanks:

For the beauty of   the natural world;

For the joy of   loving others and being loved in return;

For every   experience of delight, each memory we treasure;

For the gifts we   receive through worship, reflection,

insight and   prayer;

For every form of   excellence;

all we can achieve   when we work together;

For every moment of hope won back from anxiety or heartache;

For each glimpse   of your peace, not only promised, but made real;

For every time we   have been glad to be alive.

2003-2008.

Creator God, you   have given each one of us

an overflowing   measure of good things.

May we receive your gifts with gratitude

and enjoy them wisely and well;

You invite us to   become your partners

in generating   abundant life for all.

May we develop our abilities,

encourage others to use their gifts

and invest the talents you have given

for the common good,

this day and forever.
