We turn to embrace the rising Sun.
The fire that burns brilliantly in the morning sky.
Its glow gleams in the growing earth and glistens in sea and sky.
[turn east with hands outstretched for silent reflection]
We turn to embrace the dazzling Son.
May his fire burn in our hearts.
May his glow gleam through our actions and glisten in our love for others.
[turn west with hands outstretched for silent reflection]
—a prayer for Transfiguration Sunday by Alydia Smith
