||Angel of Water
Angel of Water, enter my blood and give the water of Life to my whole body.
The Essenes considered the circulation of water in nature to correspond to the circulation of the blood in the body. They knew all organisms as well as their foods consist largely of water, which is essential to life on earth. The perfection of the organism depends upon the quality of the blood, and in like manner the perfection of the physical environment depends upon the quality of the water available. The Essenes recognized that flowing water has healing and purifying qualities, and thus used this energy to nurture the flow of energy in their lives.

||The Angel of Water
To the dry and barren desert
Have the Brothers brought the Angel of Water:
That she might bring forth a garden and a green place,
Tree-filled and fragrant with flowers.
Cast thyself into the enfolding arms
Of the Angel of Water:
For she shall cast out from thee
All that is unclean and evil.
Let my love flow toward thee, Heavenly Father,
As the river flows to the sea.
And let thy love flow to me, Heavenly Father,
As the gentle rain doth kiss the earth.
As a river through the forest
Is the Holy Law.
All creatures depend on it,
And it denieth nothing to any being.
The Law is to the world of men
What a great river is to streams and brooks.
As rivers of water in a dry place
Are the Brothers who bringeth the Holy Law
To the world of men.
In water mayest thou drown,
And in water mayest thou quench thy thirst.
Thus is the Holy Law a two-edged sword:
By the Law mayest thou destroy thyself,
And by the Law mayest thou see God.
From thy Heavenly Sea flow all the Waters
That spread over all the seven Kingdoms.
This Heavenly Sea of thine alone
Goeth on bringing Waters
Both in summer and winter and in all seasons.
This Sea of thine purifieth the seed in males,
The womb in females,
The milk in female's breasts.
Thy Heavenly Sea floweth down unrestrained
Unto the big-seeded corn fields,
Unto the small-seeded pasture fields,
And unto the whole of the Earthly World.
A thousand pure Springs run toward the pastures
That give food to the Children of Light.
If any one shall sacrifice unto thee,
O thou holy Angel of Water!
To that one dost thou give both splendor and glory,
With health and with vigor of the body.
To him dost thou give a long enduring life,
And the Heavenly Sea, thereafter.
We worship all the holy waters
Which do quench the thirst of the earth,
All the holy waters that the Creator hath made,
And all the plants which the Creator hath made,
All of which are holy.
We do worship the Water of Life,
And all waters upon the earth,
Whether standing, or running, or waters of the well,
Or spring-waters which perennially flow,
Or the blessed drippings of the rains,
We do sacrifice unto the good and holy waters
Which the Law hath created.
Let the sea roar, and all the waters,
The world, and they that dwell therein.
Let the floods clap their hands,
Let the hills be joyful together.
The voice of the Lord is upon the waters:
The God of Glory thundereth.
Heavenly Father! And thou, Angel of Water!
We are thankful to thee, and we bless thy name.
A flood of love welleth up
From the hidden places beneath the earth:
The Brotherhood is blessed forever
In the Holy Water of Life.
