Anthem from the Gnostic Mass
Priest: Thou who art I, beyond all I am,
Who hast no nature and no name,
Who art, when all but thou art gone,
Thou, Centre and secret of the Sun,
Thou, hidden spring of all things known
And unknown, Thou aloof, alone,
Thou, the true fire within the reed
Brooding and breeding, source and seed
Of life, love, liberty and light,
Thou beyond speech and beyond sight,
Thee I invoke, my faint fresh fire
Kindling as my intents aspire,
Thee I invoke, abiding one,
Thee, centre and secret of the Sun,
And that most holy mystery
Of which the vehicle am I.
Appear, most awful and most mild,
As it is lawful, in thy child!
Chorus: For of the Father and the Son
The Holy Spirit is the norm;
Male-female, quintessential, one,
Man-being veiled in woman-form.
Glory and worship in the highest,
Thou Dove, mankind that deifiest,
Being that race, most royally run
To spring sunshine through winter storm.
Glory and worship be to Thee,
Sap of the world-ash, wonder-tree!
Men: Glory to Thee from gilded tomb!
Women: Glory to Thee from waiting womb!
Men: Glory to Thee from earth unploughed!
Women: Glory to Thee from virgin vowed!
Men: Glory to Thee, true Unity
Of the eternal Trinity!
Women: Glory to Thee, thou sire and dam
And self of I am that I am!
Men: Glory to Thee, beyond all term,
Thy spring of sperm, thy seed and germ!
Women: Glory to Thee, eternal Sun,
Thou One in Three, Thou Three in One!
All: Glory and worship unto Thee,
Sap of the world-ash, wonder-tree!
