My voice shall You hear at all times, O Lord: Early in the morning will I direct my prayer to You, and I will look up.
Blessed are You, O Lord, who, as on this day, created the firmament, the heaven, and the heaven of heavens, inhabited by the celestial powers; angels and archangels, cherubim and seraphim: Who, as on this day, did divide and fix the waters that be above the firmament; and make those mists and exhalations, from whence proceed showers and dew, hail and sleet, snow like wool, hoar-frost scattered like ashes, ice cast out like morsels, clouds brought from the ends of the earth, lightning and thunder, winds, which You draw out of Your treasures, and storms, which fulfil Your word. Then also did You separate the waters under the heavens, and fit them for my service here below, for the uses of drinking and washing.
