You reign on high, Lord—
Clothed with majesty and splendor!
The clouds are Your chariot;
You ride on the wings of the wind (Psalm 104).

Like You, there is no other
Who can transform the heart;
Who can quench the soul’s thirst;
Who can alleviate the anguished mind.

You said, and it was done.
You established the boundaries of the waters.
You cause the grass to grow for the livestock.
At Your rebuke, the storm subsides.

There is no other like You.
The birds are taken care of,
Flowers are clothed; by Your hand
The moon proclaims the seasons.

O Lord, in wisdom You made all,
And creation proclaims Your glory.
The Earth is full of it,
Even its perils remind us we are not gods.

When trouble comes, all look to You,
Our Creator, whom we know can deliver us.
You have done it before,
Your Holy Word testifies of Your great works.

Do it again Father,
Bring glory to Your name through COVID-19.
Send forth Your Spirit and cleanse us
From the sin that ensnares us.

Do not turn Your face from us,
Hear our humble cry.
It is You we seek, You alone,
Our only sure foundation.

May Your glory endure forever,
May we rejoice in Your works for generations.
We will sing praises to You with thanksgiving,
And rejoice in all Your proclamations.

Now, through this pandemic, and beyond,
To face with boldness and faith
The trials of our age, the cross of this day,
Until that glorious day where we’ll rise from death.

In Jesus’ Name,
Amen.
