The Mother with Her Four Aspects1The Aspects:
Mother, we pray, we too may go with Thee.
For by Thy service we last through Eternity.
Mother, make me Thy highest Height.
Give me Thy Knowledge to end the Night.
In Thy gold Fount of tranquillity
I shall wash the mortal's misery.
I call to Thy quick Power supreme!
O crush the pride of ignorance-dream.
My thunder feet shall break the head
Of the Asura, by me shall be led
The warrior-children of the truth.
Mother, for them my boundless ruth.
Mother, Thy Rapture-Fire I crave.
I shall throw all filth to a bottomless grave.
Thy Harmony shall be my gift
To earth; and I her form shall lift
To Thy all-embracing Joy and Love
And all shall breathe Thy Spirit above.
Perfect perfection on me bestow.
Mother, I shall sow
Within the heart of aspiring earth.
In me Thy Work's undying birth.
