Laudate Dominus

Listen (MP3)

I'm grateful for this mattress
Where I sleep at night
And for the person near me
Laudate dominus.

And for this steamy shower
Soap and sweet shampoo
And this soft white towel
Laudate dominus

I'm grateful for the sweater
Jeans and underwear
The stockings and the sneakers
Laudate dominus

Praise God for this banana
Sliced on my bran flakes
And for this cup of coffee
Laudate dominus

Praise God for repetition
And simple harmony
Another winter morning
Laudate dominus.

Forgive us our trespasses
And our fickle hearts
Thank you for your kindness
Laudate dominus


Though the bus be crowded
Though the music loud
Though the work be stressful
Laudate dominus.

Though the news be dismal
Though my friends be sad
Even in confusion
Laudate dominus.

For this soup and salad
For this cup of tea
For this peaceful table
Laudate dominus.

For this final chorus
For this company
For thy grace and kindness
Laudate dominus.
