Hymns of the Pearl Volume 2

March of the Cathars

    Front cover art:  Light and Darkness by Mar Sarah Stead.  The white and black face, both male and female, both awake and asleep, suggests the foundation of opposites that permeates all existence in the material world.  The music of volume two reflects on the uniting of all opposites, a condition which is necessary if we are to develop into Divine Anthropos.

    The Hymns of the Pearl emanate out of the living Gnostic mysteries we share as a community. The music and lyrics celebrate the principles of individuation that each member of the Pearl embraces. May your listening experience deepen your meditation on the wonders of becoming the Christ.

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)
