Prayers for Animal Welfare

Let us worship the Lord of Heaven;
Who took on flesh to redeem His Creation.
All creatures praise you, O'Christ.

Before your birth, a donkey carried you
All creatures praise you, O'Christ.

Oxen warmed your infant body
All creatures praise you, O'Christ.

Camels bore you kingly gifts
All creatures praise you, O'Christ.

You wandered with the beasts of the wilderness
All creatures praise you, O'Christ.

An ass brought you to Jerusalem
All creatures praise you, O'Christ.

You took the place of the Passover lamb
All creatures praise you, O'Christ.

You rose from death and freed all creation
All creatures praise you, O'Christ.

Tender God, who did not abhor
the manger or the cross, look
with mercy on your fractured
Earth. Come quickly and heal
the wounds of your Creation,
that the lion and the lamb may
rejoice, and the Kingdom of
Heaven may dawn in our
hearts. Amen.

Composed by REVD HELEN HALL, Assistant Curate in the parish of Maindee Newport, Monmouthshire, for a meeting of the THREE COUNTIES PRAYER GROUP FOR ANIMALS, Gloucester Cathedral.
