Prayer of Praise

How shall I find words that can capture the truth?
I am far too bold even to try.
For how many before me have dared this, to praise you,
searching themselves for new ways of speaking?
If I could find only one phrase that expressed a sunset,
or a word for birds' wings, or a sound for clouds,
I would be content.
But so many are your wonders and so inadequate my small attempts
that I can only hope to have reflected some of what you are.
Or perhaps I serve you best when I fall silent in your presence.
