O ADONAI, O ELOHIM
LEADER OF ISRAEL’S HOUSE
WHO SPOKE YOUR NAME IN FIRE TO MOSES
AND UPON THE HOLY MOUNTAIN CARVED YOUR LOVE AS LAW
AND WITH YOUR OUTSTRETCHED ARM
O One containing everything
O Name without sound
O Great I AM,
You draw the majesty of all the gods into your One creative fire
Outside You nothing is.
Because we cannot say your name
We call you Adonai, the leadership, providence going forth,
We call you Elohim, the genesis, the ‘let it be’ of creation.
We drop the letters and sounds we can utter
Into the unutterable YHWH.
And we hear you in the fire,
We hear you in the thunder,
We hear you in the heartbeat,
I AM THAT I AM.
