Hymns of the Pearl Volume 2

Complete Lyrics

March of the Cathars

In honor of our Gnostic ancestors exiled from their homeland in August 1209

 

Carcassonne, fare thee well, old Friend of God

Your holy ones marching, cast out of you.

Naked in the darkness, we seek our Home.

Sweet consort, Sophia, in exile join.

 

Jesus, Redeemer, hear us, lead us to our Home.

Transform the hate and fear that makes us march alone.

Jesus, Redeemer, hear us, lead us to our Home.

Transform the hate and fear that makes us march alone.  

 

To Zion!  We march on, seeking our Source.  

We follow our fallen dead of Bezier.  

The Spirit of Love, know us, each one.

We know Him, we love Her, we holy ones.

 

Sophia, dark forces have trapped us in their web.

We wait with you Mother, for Light beyond this death.

 

Carcassonne, fare thee well, old Friend of God,

Your holy ones marching, cast out of you.

To Zion!  We march on, seeking our Source

We follow our fallen dead of Bezier.

 

(Words and Music by Zedek)

 

Jesus Ignited a Small Spark

 

Light is Truth!  Light is Truth!

 

Jesus ignited a small spark in this dark world where we live,

And his Spirit hovers, over the world,

So it will not fade and die.

 

He will nourish, he will nourish this divine spark that he struck.

It will blaze up!  It will blaze up!  Into an Eternal Light.

 

Light is Truth!  Light is Truth!

 

Light is dispersing the darkness, Love is swallowing up hatred,

The power of hatred is strong, but Love conquers all.

God is Love!  Love is God!  

 

I am nourishing.  I am nourishing this divine spark that I struck.

Blazing up!  Blazing up!  Into an Eternal Light.  

 

Light is Truth!  Light is Truth, is Truth, is Truth!

 

(Words by Mar Samuel.  Music by Zedek)

 

 

We Are All Animals

 

We are all animals when we are born. Some then ascend to take a human form.

Others remain beasts until the day they die.  Some ascend onward to be sanctified.

 

We can be divine like our Parent Gods, if we discover that they are our Source.

Jesus descends to reveal this mystery to us.  To those pure hearts, he will give the keys.

 

Those who prepare can never be denied.  Gnosis is sent to enlighten mankind.  

Christ comes to you, knocking at the door of your heart.

Bringing his gifts freely to make you whole.

 

Open the door and Christ will enter you, bestow his gifts, your weary soul renew.

Bringing you his Parents, the Source of all that is and will be. 

So with them you can possess all things!

 

(Words by Mar Samuel.  Music by Zedek)


Mary of Bethany Asked 

 

Mary of Bethany asked, regarding mortal’s quest.  

“Does the thirst for knowledge end?  Will we be satisfied?”

 

“There is no end to your search,” the Master explained. 

“You’ll always return to drink from gnosis’ spring again.”

 

Haleluia!  Haleluia!

 

“Each time your thirst is sated, it will grow back again.  

As you grow, you’ll thirst for more, more than you’ve ever known.

 

The more you drink of gnosis, the more your need will grow.

There is no end of seeking these principles to know.”

 

Haleluia!  Haleluia!

 

“Gnosis can never fill you.  Your thirst will grow and grow.

Find fulfillment in the seeking, in the joy of your quest.

 

To find, you must be seeking.  

All those who seek will find the meaning of life in the seeking 

That transforms your mind.”

 

Haleluia!  Haleluia!  Haleluia!  Haleluia!

Haleluia!  Haleluia!  Haleluia!

Until We Are Christ’s Mind

 

Jesus said, “Look, this world can teach you much,

When you allow its message to touch.

Then, you will find the keys to those mysteries

That are hidden from humankind, until you gain Christ’s Mind.  

 

Eternal Truth shines within existence concealed,

All that is hidden will soon be revealed.

When, you can read what is conveyed in what Eloheim have made,

You will transcend the mists that keep you blind until you gain Christ’s Mind.

 

Blind Samael keeps all his children blind,

But Sophia will open mortal mind

And lead us to Christ who frees us from that dark destiny.

She restores our sight and leads us into Light, until we are Christ’s Mind. 

 

(Words by Mar Samuel.  Music by Zedek)

 

All Around Us

 

All around us!  All around us!  All around us!  All around us!

 

Mortals perceive this world’s shadows and they think they know the Truth.

But the Truth is hidden from them for they cannot see the Light.

 

Divine Light carries Truth’s image to our darkened mortal minds.

But we cannot see it clearly till our vision’s purified.

No, we cannot see it clearly till our vision’s purified.

 

All around us!  All around us!  All around us!  All around us!

 

When we look at this world’s shadows, is it shadows that we see? 

If we think we’re seeing what is real, our dark minds are still deceived.

 

We must search the Light within us to see shadows where they are.

Then, we are free from Error’s power to distort Reality.

Seeing God in all around us, “All that Is” is Deity!

 

All around us!  All around us!  All around us!  All around us!

 

When we see beyond the shadows, to perceive Reality.

Through the Light, our minds are transformed, and we start to truly see.

 

Then, we know the Realm of Bright Light is within us and without.

That we are not of the shadows, but have come here from above.

That our Source and Destination are the Realm of Divine Love!

 

All around us! The Light is All around us!  The Light is All around us!  The Light is All around us!  The Light is All around us!  The Light is All around us!  The Light is All around us!  The Light is All around us!

 

(Words by Mar Samuel.  Music by Zedek)

 

How Can We Perceive Our Parents?

 

How can we perceive our Parents when they are the Hidden Gods?

Must we be subject to Error, slaves to our own Ignorance?  

 

Are we lost here in this darkness, unconscious and all alone?  

 

Are we doomed to separation?  

Can’t we know as we are known?

Are we doomed to separation?  

Can’t we know as we are known?

 

Look within!  The Gods of Light shine through you!

 

Jesus said, “Just look within you.  There, your Parents you will find.  

Learn yourself and you will know them, for they produced humankind.

 

Then you will ascend to our Parents, to join them in their divine realm.

 

Enter into Life Eternal through the Parent’s perfect Plan.  

Enter into Life Eternal through the Parent’s perfect Plan.  

 

Look within!  The Gods of Light shine through you”!

 

“You are children of Eloheim!  Don’t you know you’ll be like them?

Don’t pollute your precious birthright and you’ll live with them again.”

 

It’s our divine heritage to become like our Parents, Masters of the Light.

 

We will join them in their bright realm.  In their presence, we will shine.

We will join them in their bright realm.  In their presence, we will shine.  

 

Look within!  The Gods of Light shine through you!

 

(Words by Mar Samuel.  Music by Zedek)

Jesus and Mary Sat Watching the Crowd

 

Jesus and Mary sat watching the crowd.

They wandered the market, lost in their own worlds.  

Lost sheep, with no shepherd to guide them to rest,

Doomed always to wander because they’re deaf.

 

Listen!  The Good Shepherd calls his sheep home,

But they reject his barn to stay in the storm.

They wander in darkness until they’re consumed 

By archons who devour their souls, ‘till they’re gone.

 

Bless us, Sophia, to hear our Lord’s call.

Where he leads we’ll follow to safety and rest.

He’ll feed us on gnosis until we are filled, 

Prepared to work with him, our Zion to build!

 

Our Zion to build!  Our Zion to build!

 

(Words by Mar Samuel. Music by Zedek)

 

Our Darkened World Is Split Apart

 

Our darkened world is split apart, everything opposite.

Disharmony and variance characterize mortal life.

 

We often feel were stranded, facing foes we can’t see.

We reach out to our Parent Gods, trusting in the power of their Love.

 

Christ came here to bridge the gap, reconcile opposites.

End disharmony so that this world can discover peace.

 

You walk in mists of darkness, the heritage of this realm.

But inside you have the Light of Love, and it burns with Divine Fire.

 

You need not dwell in darkness!  As you think, so is the world.

Purify your heart so what you love will create a world full of Light!

 

Christ came here to bridge the gap, reconcile opposites.

End disharmony so that this world can discover peace.

 

(Words by Mar Samuel and Zedek.  Music by Zedek)

 

This Earth, the Planets Will All Pass

 

This earth, the planets, will all pass, and everything will become new.

To understand you must recall that you were one but now are two.

 

To your mind, separateness is right,

You think your parts can make a whole.

But this illusion too must pass for you to be a divine soul.

Yes, this illusion too must pass for you to be a divine soul.

 

Your soul’s divided.  You’re not one until Sophia lives in you.  

Until the Christ is born within, matures, and heals, and unveils Truth.

 

Then he will die and live again, 

Within your soul and you’ll be free.

Free to ascend to worlds of Light

And live in perfect liberty.

Free to ascend to worlds of Light

And live in perfect liberty. 

 

 

The enlightened will perceive, the meaning of this mystery.

Will see the worlds within and know the Way to divine liberty.

 

Sophia and Christ rise in me

And I will rise with them until

There is no Sophia.  There is no Christ.  

There is no me, but only ONE!  

 

This earth, the planets will all pass.

This earth, the planets will all pass.

This earth, the planets will all pass.
