O Adonai (O Sacred Lord)
O Sacred Lord of ancient Israel,
who showed yourselft to Moses in the burning bush,
who gave him the holy law on Sinai mountain:
Come, stretch out your mighty hand
to set us free.
O Sacred Lord,
Who appeared as a flaming bush to Moses,
and as a flame we see symbolized
In your Sacred Heart
And in the Tongues of Fire.
You who gave Moses the Law,
And who gave us a New Law of Love,
to Love You and our neighbor equally.
Come, Sacred Lord,
And set us free,
Break the bonds of sin that bind us.

Isaiah 33:22; 63:11-12
