In harmony with the Tao, the sky is clear and spacious,

The earth is solid and full, all creatures flourish together,

Content with the way they are, endlessly repeating themselves, endlessly renewed.

Chapter 39 – Tao Te Ching


Who is like the Lord our God,

Who is seated on high,

Who looks far down

On the heavens and the earth?

He raises the poor from the dust,

And lifts the needy from the ash heap,

To make them sit with princes,

With the princes of his people.

He gives the barren woman a home,

Making her the joyous mother of children.

Praise the Lord!

Psalm 113:5-9
