Father of the Dreaming
Your enduring love has sustained us for over 60,000 years
Your presence, as the guiding light in our
lives has ensured that we,
the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of Australia continue to walk on our land in Your footsteps.
During the Christmas Season we sing of
our gratitude for the example of Your life, which gives us new meaning to our lives.
We acknowledge and we are comforted by our companionship and Your promise to be with us, Your Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
As we celebrate Christmas Day may
wonder take hold of us again,
opening our eyes to the marvels of Your creation and, renewing our desire to imitate your gentleness and peace. We ask this in Your name, Jesus,
in whose life we rejoice today.
