(The following litany is based on Psalm 148.)
Praise God from the heavens!
Praise Him from the skies above!
Praise God, angels and all the hosts of heaven!
Praise Him, sun and moon, and shining stars!
Praise God, all creatures great and small,
Praise Him, animals and birds, reptiles and fish!
Praise God, kings of the earth and people everywhere,
Praise Him, men and women, young and old!
Let all the earth bring praise to the Lord,
at whose word creation came into being.
We gather to praise and worship our God!
– Christine Longhurst, on behalf of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank
