The image depicts a man crawling under the edge of the sky, depicted as if it were a solid hemisphere, to look at the mysterious Empyrean beyond.

"I lift my voice to sing, to sing into the night sky, as though the far distant stars could hear my song, and sparkle all the more brightly for it. Let my song echo my praise into the deepest vaults of heaven. Let it be a hymn of thanks from one life in celebration of all life, for the sheer beauty of taking breath, for the joy of each sunrise that awakens the slumbering Earth. I lift my voice to my God, worker of wonders, giver of light, dreamer of all that was and is and every will be. Come join your voice to mine, together to sing, sing the anthem of hearts new with hope."
