From morning's breaking
till night's footfall,
makes its curtain call.
God bless its rising,
God bless its setting,
over North America.
This prayer book is both "Contemporary" and "North
American." It is contemporary because it tries to use
current and inclusive language whenever possible, in
ways that ref lect the usage of people today. It is North
American because it uses the places, persons and history
of North America as a basis for prayer and meditation.
