Dancing with Light and with Darkness

 

Swirling, circling blue Light!  

Waving, spiraling Sea Divine!

 

In the middle of the Sea you can see the Tree of Life!

And around the circle you go again!  And inside the Sea Divine you dance

With Light and darkness.

 

Blue faced Father, what do you know in your Mind of Light?

Serpent, Sophia, what do you feel in your heart of Love?

 

In the middle of the Sea they can see the Tree of Life!  

And around the circle they go again!

And inside the Sea Divine they dance with Light and darkness!

 

Dancing with Light and with darkness!

Dancing with Light and with darkness!

 

Eloheim!  Witnessing the Dance of the Light and the darkness.

Uniting, embracing all They behold in the Sea Divine.

 

In the middle of the Sea we can see the Tree of Life!  

And around the circle we go again!  And inside the Sea Divine we dance

With Light and darkness!

With Light and darkness!

With Light and darkness!

I Feel Sophia Calling Me

 

I feel Sophia calling me to bathe in the Eternal Sea.

And while I center in the Light I love, I feel its warmth and might.

We sing our praises to the Gods of Light, lift up our prayers and hear their word.

And find the strength for meeting each day’s needs, and learn to follow Jesus’ deeds.

 

With Heaven, we commune at last!  We’re glad our empty lives are past.

That Jesus raised us from the dead to dwell with him, our Living Head.

 

So with the angels, saints, and Gods of Love, we’ll lift our praises to the Law

Which brought us here to live on the earth and lead us onward to Rebirth.

 

For now we’re children of the Eloheim!  We’ll walk that path which they have trod.

Eternal blessings pouring out on us, celestial bliss and holy power!

 

We’ll create worlds!  Bring our children forth!  

Teach them the Mysteries of greatest worth!

Lead them back Home, to our Home at last, when trials of mortal life are past.

 

I feel Sophia calling me.

I feel Sophia calling me.  

 

I feel Sophia calling me to bathe in the Eternal Sea.

And while I center in her holy Love, I feel her beckoning.

I feel her calling me.

Moon Arises

 

Sophia! Sophia! Sophia! Sophia!

 

Sophia! Sophia! Sophia! Sophia!

 

You’ve been searching for the longest time.

You’ve been following a Master Mind.  

You’ve been running from heavenly messengers.

You’ve been looking to survive in the power not to serve.

 

Sophia! Sophia! Sophia! Sophia!

 

The Moon arises without a sound.

Dragons are coming.

Fire breathing down.

 

The Wind announces

The Winter Night.

Where has the Moon gone?

Things are moving on. 

 

Come our silver Queen,

Lady of night’s mercy.

Nourish and protect us

With your silent Light.

Be our Moon tonight!

Arise Sophia!

 

(Words and Music by Zedek)

 

Sunrise

 

I watched the sunrise dance upon the mountain.

He let me look him straight inside his Eye.  

I followed his surrounding dance of passion.

I knew the Sun won’t lie.

 

He spun a ray and colored sleeping hillside.

The feeling was so slow, I thought I’d die.

Is this the way that Life proceeds inside us?

Yes, the Sun won’t lie!

 

All the answers to questions we raise became the sunrise!

 

All the desert creatures greet the sunrise.

It seems I never noticed this before.

Listening intently to the life here 

Whose the living for?

 

Eagerly, the first bird cross the new sky.

All alone, I thanked God for his wings.

Then I thought I’ve waited for this sunrise

To hear the Song God sings. 

 

All the answers to questions we raise became the sunrise!

 

(Words and Music by Zedek)

 

Earth’s Joy

 

To look upon the deepening blue, the roiling clouds in contrast,

The wide expanse of cobalt sky, draws out my gratitude.

 

As shoots of green thrust soil aside, as buds burst forth in blossom,

The lusty fervor of the earth projects oh Yah your passion.

 

Ecstatic energy and power, crackling in the earth and sky!

Yah’s love displayed to heart and eye,

Births Joy deep felt and surging.

 

I feel Earth’s Joy!

I feel Earth’s Joy!

I feel Earth’s Joy!

Earth’s Joy!

 

Sophia’s Spirit stirs the sea, the voice of ocean thunders.

The glistening waves dance in the light and sea birds sound the cadence.

 

“Sing praise to Christ and Sophia” all nature shouts together.

The joyful blending of earth’s song pours forth Sophia’s laughter.

 

Ecstatic energy and power, crackling in the earth and sky!

Yah’s love displayed to heart and eye,

Births Joy deep felt and surging.

 

I feel Earth’s Joy!

I feel Earth’s Joy!

I feel Earth’s Joy!

Earth’s Joy!

 

(Words by Mar Mary Elizabeth.  Music by Zedek)

 

A Forest Song

 

I see your Love is like a forest song, growing high and growing strong.

The mountain shows your faith in climbing where others do not dare.

 

The river passes time the easy way, flowing day by day, 

Bringing joy to all who come to stay, and isn’t this your way?

 

Only when I drink can I know Who you really are.

But then, there’s a shining in our eyes!  A Forest Song and star!

 

The forest trees, they are your life, a wilderness of love.

The birds that sing are yours and mine, a Forest Song of Love!

 

Only when I walk with You can I know Who you really are.

But then, there’s a shining in our eyes!  A Forest Song and star!

 

The seasons change and the flowers bloom,

Your face in all I view.

I’ve come to hear a different Voice, A Forest Song of loving You!

A Forest Song of loving You!

 

(Words and Music by Zedek)

 

The Divine Ocean

 

The Divine Ocean calls you, dancing on your shore.

Swimming its waves all around you, at your Spirit’s door.

 

Calling you now in eternal waves, you swim its Mind the Mind you crave,

Submerging in Love as you float on its Faith, 

While emerging in you is all that is true.

 

So let a holy song be sung!

Until the world is done.

Your life can be the Sea

And sail eternally.

 

Ahh

 

The Divine Ocean knows you, evermore and more.

Finding its life deep within you, the lullaby of Now.

 

Soothing inside and erupting without, 

Its presence is Peace, its Truth leaves no doubt.

Once you were blind, and once you were brave,

But now you’re an Ocean and now you are saved!

 

So let a holy song be sung!

Until the world is done.

Your life can be the Sea

And sail eternally.

 

Ahh

Ode to Divine Life

 

“Death is not the enemy.  The enemy is failure to live life fully,

Fear of grasping life’s pleasures.  

 

Live in joyous ecstasy!  Welcome death rapturously.

Then you will be one with me,

Living with the Eloheim.”

 

Lord, must we ascend your cross?  

Must we pass with you through death?

Is sorrow the way to joy?

Is death the one way to Life?

“I will transform your sorrows!  

I will lift you above death!  

You will find wholeness in me as you grow eternally.

Eternally!”

 

Teach us Lord, your mysteries.  Lead us beyond mortality!

Help us see as you perceive.

Help us eat of the Gnosis Tree!

 

We join you to become whole.

We would become divine souls! 

We would embrace Life through death!

Lead us to true happiness.  

 

Lord, must we ascend your cross?  

Must we pass with you through death?

Is sorrow the way to joy?

Is death the one way to Life?

“I will transform your sorrows!  

I will lift you above death!  

You will find wholeness in me as you grow eternally.

Eternally!

Living with the Eloheim.”

 

(Words by Mar Samuel.  Music by Zedek)

The Way of Peace

 

Peace! Peace! Peace! Peace! Peace!

 

The Way of Peace requires courage.

The Way of Peace requires patience.

The Way of Peace is not easy,

But it will prevail,

Will prevail.

 

Peace! Peace!

 

Can evil overcome evil?

A thing cannot overcome itself.

Can violence overcome violence?

A thing cannot overcome itself.

 

No, a thing can’t overcome itself

To try will only increase its power.

Only by uniting with its opposite will evil cease,

Or will violence lose its power.

 

Peace! Peace! Peace! Peace! Peace!

 

The Way of Peace requires courage.

The Way of Peace requires patience.

The Way of Peace is not easy,

But it will prevail,

Will prevail.

 

The Way of Peace requires courage.

The Way of Peace requires patience.

The Way of Peace is not easy,

But it will prevail,

Will prevail.
