|Introduction||The Spiritual Sun, Book 1|
The Kingdom of God
1. The clamour of the world-bustle is silent. / We look up to quiet spiritual heights, / And glances, transfigured by the mind, / how the Realm of Truth leans towards earth. / His heavenly light plays about our souls / and His holy fire streams through our beings. / From the deepest sources of the heart breaks through, / eternal life for the covenant celebration
2. How wondrously great is God's Kingdom realm! / It stretches into all distant times, / it encompasses the earth and innumerable stars / and only resides where a heart glows for the good! / Who espied the number of inhabitants therein! / Who knows the fullness of His power and might? / The seeds, sowed here in countless numbers, / the thriving and ripening of golden blessing?
3. Here the Spirit of the Father blows, silently and pure! / Here freedom reigns in fullness of force! / Here hope blossoms, and faith in its light-being / frolics in the lovely early season glow. / Godly trust reaches unto Its completion, / humility is embarrassed in its own light. / Passion rests, fully atoned in peace. / Devotion kneels, praying with immense passion.
4. The Sun of this Kingdom is the Spirit of the Father! / See how the eternal spirits surrounds Him, / coming closer to Him in ever diminishing circles, / till whole their very lives merges with His! / Who is here not brought into recognition of his childhood! / Who do not painfully feel what his dusty life still lacks! / An deep homesickness burns in our breast, / The thirsty souls longs after its Primordial Source. / Jakob Lorber (translated)
