And now, the Last  Word:
But there may be one of these days, so keep
checking back...I have an idea.
Praise we the Lord
Of the heavenly kingdom,
God's power and wisdom,
The works of His hand;
As the Father of glory,
Eternal Lord,
Wrought the beginning
Of all His wonders!
Holy Creator!
Warden of men!
First, for a roof,
O'er the children of earth,
He established the heavens,
And founded the world,
And spread the dry land
For the living to dwell in.
Lord Everlasting!
Almighty God!
--Caedmon (died circa 680 AD)
The earliest English poet whose name is known,   
Caedmon was an Anglo-Saxon herdsman who
was not a musician, but was taught the art of
composing in a dream.

Author of my well-being, source of knowledge, fount of holiness,
height of glory, all-mightiness of eternal splendor!

I shall choose that which He shall have taught me
and I shall rejoice in that which He shall have appointed unto me.

When I put forth my hands and my feet, I shall bless His Name;
when I go out or when I go in, when I sit down or when I rise up,
and upon my bed shall I sing unto Him.

--from the Dead Sea Scrolls (2nd century BC- 1st century AD)

Listen to the Exhortation of the Dawn! Look to this Day! For it is Life,
the very Life of Life. In its brief course lie all the Verities and Realities
of your Existence. The Bliss of Growth, the Glory of Action, The Splendor
of Beauty; For Yesterday is but a dream, And To-morrow is only a vision;
But To-day well lived makes Every Yesterday a Dream of Happiness,
And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope. Look well therefore to this Day!
Such is the Salutation of the Dawn!
--Kalidasa (5th century AD)
Indian Sanskrit poet and dramatist
O come, let us sing unto the Lord,
Let us joyfully acclaim the Rock of our salvation.
Let us approach Him with thanksgiving,
And acclaim Him with songs of praise.
--Jewish Prayer
Praise God from whom
all blessings flow,
Praise Him, all creatures here below,
  Praise Him above, ye heavenly host,
                Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.  Amen.
Christian Doxolgy

    A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him
    than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness'
    on the walls of his cell.
    --C. S. Lewis
