Chapter 1: He Proclaims the Greatness of God, Whom He Desires to Seek and Invoke, Being Awakened by Him.
You are great, O Lord, and greatly to be praised. Great is Your power, and Your wisdom is infinite. And man would praise You; man, who is but a small particle of Your creation; yes, man, though he carries with him his mortality, the evidence of his sin, the evidence that You resist the proud; yet man, but a particle of Your creation, would praise You.
You awake us to delight in your praise; for You made us for Yourself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in You.
