A Collect to See the Wonders of Creation

Lord God, who creates wonders on earth that we might enjoy, open our eyes to see your glory, the majesty that your creation puts on display for all with eyes to see, that we would be filled with awe and delight and rejoice in your goodness, and our mouths could not help but pour forth praise, through Jesus Christ our Lord who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in perpetual light. Amen. ‘The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad, the desert shall rejoice and blossom; like the crocus it shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the majesty of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the LORD, the majesty of our God.’ – Isaiah 35:1-2
