O Burning Mountain

O Burning Mountain is a poetic prayer from the 13th Century written by Mechthild of Magdeburg, Germany who had her first vision of the Holy Spirit at age 12.  This prayer lends itself to adoration of God’s majesty.

O burning mountain,
O chosen sun,
O perfect moon,
O fathomless well,
O unattainable height,
O clearness beyond measure,
O wisdom without end,
O mercy without limit,
O strength beyond resistance,
O crown of all majesty,
the humblest you created sings your praise,
Amen.
