The voice of God will now be telling you when to turn right the next time you use the social navigation application Waze—but not in the Moses “God’s talking to me from a burning bush” type of way.

Morgan Freeman—who’s played God, Batman’s right hand, and an inmate named Red (among many, many other roles)—is now narrating Waze’s navigation for a limited time. You can imagine my—and everyone in the universe’s—excitement at this news.

Freeman’s Waze voiceover is part of promotion for the anticipated action film London Has Fallen.The film, which is the sequel to 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler, Angela Bassett, and Aaron Eckhart, opens on March 4th. Freeman is in-character as Vice President Trumbull throughout the narration, saying key phrases like, “The American people are counting on you… to drive,” and “The world awaits your commands.”

To get Morgan Freeman’s dulcet tones narrating your every turn, simply download the Waze app on your Android or Apple device. Then, go to Settings, select Sound, then Voice Language and choose God—erm, I mean Morgan Freeman. Really. Choose Morgan Freeman. Not God.

Really—who wouldn’t want the actor’s velvety, soothing tones guiding you through your city’s streets, help you avoid traffic jams, and locate the cheapest gas in your area?

If only he could narrate my life. #wishfulthinking
