Need help with exposed wiring.

Light install went bad. We have a positive negative and ground wire dangling from the wall. Is it safe to turn the breaker back on if we put a wire nut on the end of each wire (separately)? More, does the ground wire need a nut?

we have an electrician coming this week to do what we cannot--hang a light fixture. Until then we have wires that are exposed. As I type this the circuit breaker is off, but we can't go without power in the bathroom until the electrician comes on Tues or Weds.
What can we safely do to these wires so we can turn the power back on? (They're high up so they won't be touched even accidentally but don't want to cause a short or a fire)
