The God of gods—it’s God!—speaks out, shouts, “Earth!”
welcomes the sun in the east,
farewells the disappearing sun in the west.
From the dazzle of Zion,
God blazes into view.
Our God makes his entrance,
he’s not shy in his coming.
Starbursts of fireworks precede him. —Psalm 50:1–3, The Message
Earth’s crammed with heaven, and every common bush afire with God, but only he who sees takes off his shoes; the rest sit round and pluck blackberries. —Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Blaze into view, O God, with sunrise and sunset declaring your glory. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
