Cracked earth
O God,
in whom we live and move
and have our being,
O Love,
who embraced our sorrows
and took away our sins on the cross,
hear us now who come to you,
sometimes trusting,
sometimes fearful,
sometimes falling.
O God, O Love,
draw us to your loving heart,
where our fears may be quieted
and our tears wiped away
and where we, with your Son Jesus Christ
may embrace the sorrows of the world
and answer your call to forgive,
in your most merciful heart.


Though the fig tree does not blossom,
and no fruit is on the vines;
though the produce of the olive fails
and the fields yield no food;
though the flock is cut off from the fold
and there is no herd in the stalls,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
I will exult in the God of my salvation.
God, the Lord, is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
and makes me tread upon my heights.

Habakkuk 3:17-19
