He stands on the Rock
the beautiful rock
beside the flourishing
Tree of Life.

He stands on the Rock
on the beautiful rock
beside the flowing
river of light.

He raises his arms
like wings of lightning
two beacon-flames
of luminous fire.

His voice goes out
with the strength
of a ringing bell
with softness of a rose
the sweetness of a love song.

From advent of the event
to the present moment
the course of time
is turning around.

Faith no longer
turns to Heaven
prayers no longer 
leave the Earth.

From advent of the event
to this very moment
the Great Work keeps starting up
the Great Miracle keeps coming true.


Heaven comes down
Heaven comes home
to the Banquet of Life:
on the Living Earth.

He stands on the Rock
the beautiful rock
beside the flowering
Tree of Life.
