chapter 1 No Matter
A Supernatural being, - what is he like, what will he do?
Always, always, no beginning,
there you were before all time,
no far stars and no high mountains:
awesome, certain your design –
long before all else existing
you alone could start creating.
He’s different, superior, beyond comprehension.
No way to describe him, his essence explain.
True, holy, just, perfect, pure, happy, and able:
this Source-of-all-else, who’ll unconquered remain.
He is, alone, profound, divine,
but companionship within his Being
(mystery immense, sublime):
plural personalities combine,
giving full and rich contentment,
infinite, unique, transcendent,
sharing, and consulting, loving.
Unspotted splendour, brilliant Light,
scorching purity, dazzlingly bright.
What would he do,
what plans, decrees would he pursue?
What actions would befit,
What occupation would
he choose, permit,
himself to do?
He formed a scheme to use his skill,
a plan appropriate to fulfil.
