front royal, va. u.s.a.
A great battle now brews
Forces amass at mind's gate
Body moans, emotions rampage, mind darkens
Flame of will flickers
Mind seeks heart in marriage of darkness
Oh brave heart, resist!
Wed not the emporer of ill mood
Remain untouched pure sister
Refute, thou, the crude advances of darkness
Rally thy slumbering forces of light
Rise gallantly to the struggle
With sword of wisdom and shield of faith
Embrace the battle!
Command thy soldiers of higher qualities;
Fearlessness, courage, endurance--
lead the right !
Determination, will, perseverence--
charge the left!
Detachment, perspective, discrimination--
bring up the rear!
Oh great tide of blazing light
No darkness can survice they onslaught.
As brave Helios untiringly banishes the night
Which sneaks back only in his absence
Light the inner lamp of Divine Realization
Banishing forever all darkness from thy kindgom of consciousness.
