I stand before my place of work
and spread my tools before me.
grant your blessings on my tools
that they might serve me as well
as the parts of my body do.
grant your blessings upon me,
that my work might bring beauty
to all the world and all who live in it.
Orderer of Chaos,
grant that all that I do might be in accord
with the will of Nature,
so that, by doing my work,
I might do the will of the gods.
