From the vaults below the desert-temple
to the throne among the stars
In the hearts of us, your children, oh divine luminary;
Thou shineth!
Like sunbeams penetrating the foundations of the earth
thine grace ignites the seeds of creation
And in our veins is stillness, as your shadows come to life,
for they are like whispers speaking of...

...death in heaven!

Behold the black cloud of corpselike birds
Their wings are on fire
And their song has turned backwards
A morbid cacophony singing of a new dawn...

Burn my flesh, thou light of lights!
Most eminent perfection, most magnificent of sights
Mark me with thee, stainless Ar!
Most real, so clear and bright they shine both eye and star
Descend upon the dead, black sky!
By a grace of just one glance they all will die
Pour the bitter wine of salvation into our blood!
And let our scars form rivers flooding the kingdom of their god

Let the immense gates of heaven open
Let the dawn of justice come
When a thousand pale and silenced faces
turn towards the sky,
to behold in fear and wonder how the firmanent turns dark
by the sound of a lonely trumpet calling
And countless birdlike carrions fall reeking from above,
embedded in a red glow telling of...

...A burning dawn!

For this sunrise shall not wake you by the foul light of christ,
but by Satan's fire burning in your eyes
And the thundering voice of a lion over the plains of man
shall proclaim the horned phoenix' final rise
For it is not rain that falls tonight from the black, ominous sky,
but sulphur tears from the last flock of birds
And the wind carries the smell of death, from the agony in their hearts,
as they fly in nameless fear towards...

Luciferion!
