The Angel of Power

    “Angel of Power, descend upon my Acting Body and direct all my acts.”

The Essenes conceived the whole universe as a cosmic ocean of life in which currents of cosmic powers are continually uniting all forms of life. The communion made man conscious of these cosmic vital forces surrounding and within him. The Essenes were able to absorb and utilize these currents to a remarkable degree. Through this communion they came to accept the profoundly creative power of thought.

The Angel of Power

    Thine, O Heavenly Father!
    Was the Power, when thou didst order
    a Path for each of us and all.

What is the Deed well done?
It is that done by the Children of Light
Who regard the Law as before all other things.
The best of all gifts, therefore,
Do I beseech of thee, O thou best of beings,
Heavenly Father!
That the Holy Law shall rule within us
Through thy Angel of Power!
I do approach thee with my invocations,
That thy great gifts of power
Will protect thy Heavenly Order,
And thy creative mind within us, forever.
We will extol thee, Heavenly Father,
O almighty king!
And we will bless thy power forever and ever.
So long as we be able and may have the power,
So long will we teach the people
Concerning these Deeds to be done by them
With faith toward the Heavenly Father,
The Earthly Mother, the holy Angels,
And all the Children of Light
Who till the soil of the Garden of the Brotherhood,
And in the desire for the coming of the Heavenly Order
Into their souls and their bodies.
Thine, O Heavenly Father! Was the Power,
Yea, thine, O Creator of Love!
Was the understanding and the spirit,
When thou didst order a path for each of us and all.
Through thy Power shall we go unto the people,
And teach them, saying, Trust in the Law,
And walk in the ways of the holy Angels,
So shalt thou dwell in the land,
And verily thou shalt be fed from the feast table
Of the Earthly Mother.
Delight thyself also in the Power
Of the Heavenly Father,
And he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Let not arrogancy come out of thy mouth:
For the Heavenly Father doth rule by the holy Law,
And by him actions are weighed.
He bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.
The power of the Law maketh poor, and maketh rich:
His Power bringeth low, and lifteth up.
He raiseth up the poor out of the dust,
And lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill,
And maketh them inherith the throne of glory.
Out of heaven shall he thunder
Upon the children of darkness:
The Lord shall judge with Power the ends of the earth.
Hear the voices of the Brothers
Who cry out in the wilderness and barren desert:
Prepare ye the way of the Law,
Make straight the paths of the Heavenly Father,
And the Earthly Mother,
And all the holy angels of the day and for the night.
Every valley shall be filled,
And every mountain and hill shall be brought low;
And the crooked shall be made straight,
And the rough ways shall be made smooth,
And all flesh shall see the Power of the Law.
We extol thee, Heavenly Father,
For thou hast lifted us up.
O Lord, our Almighty Powerful Father,
We cried unto thee, and thou hast healed us.
From the grave thou hast brought up
The souls of the people;
Thou hast kept them alive,
That they should not go down to the pit.
O Heavenly Father, thou art the Law;
Early and late will we seek thy Angels:
Our souls thirsteth for the Law,
Our flesh longeth for the Law.
A river of holy Power is the Law
In a dry and thirsty land, where no water is.
Our lips shall praise thy Power while we live,
We will lift up our hands in thy name.
We will preserve, we will nurture thy Heavenly Order
Through the fulfillment of Deeds.
We will invoke and pronounce by day and by night
Thy holy Power,
And that Power shall come to help us;
It will be as if there were a thousand angels
Watching over one man.
Unto thee, Heavenly Father, belongeth all Power,
And also unto thee belongeth mercy:
For the holy Law doth render to every man
According to his work.
