Reveal among us the light of your presence, that we may behold your power and glory.
O Adonai, and leader of the House of Israel,
The Burning Bush
When Moses, musing in the desert, found
He searched his learning and imagination
I too have seen the briar alight like coal,
But stinging tongues like John the Baptist shout:
Gracious Father, look kindly on Australia's burning bushland. Let it no more be burned. Let it not be consumed. For your mercy's sake. Amen.

May the Lord, when he comes, find us watching and waiting. Amen.
