burning bush


SONG OF THE BURNING BUSH

When the Burning Bush
Appeared to Abraham
Saying: "Open unto Me;
Here is your Promised Land."
Singing: "This I am.
This I am.
This I am."
Then She opened up Her cherry jam.

When the Burning Bush
Appeared to Joan of Arc
Saying: "Open unto Me
Your adventurous heart."
Singing: "This I am.
This I am.
This I am."
Then She opened up Her cherry jam.

When the Burning Bush
Appeared to Thomas Merton
Saying: "Open unto Me
Your monastic curtain."
Singing: "This I am.
This I am.
This I am."
Then She opened up Her cherry jam.

When the Burning Bush
Appeared to Doctor Jabir
Saying: "Open unto Me;
Your hidden hemisphere."
Singing: "This I am.
This I am.
This I am."
Then She opened up Her cherry jam.
