Canticle of the Supernal Sun (neutral)

(Slightly adapted from the Madrian [1] original due to confusion in the Déanic community. “Daughter of Light” is replaced with “Madria Déa”/Celestial Mother/Bright Mother whose physical symbol is a reflection of Her as Supernal Sun. Unlike the originating Madrians, Koré Di-Jana Ekklesia a.k.a. Janite Tradition does not believe that a male soul is somehow flawed and has to become feminine to be saved. The Mother of our souls, the Holy Daughter shattered and shared Her Divine Soul with humanity. She is with us, experiencing everything. The only inequality in souls is in our movement towards or away from Dea.)

This is directed to our Celestial Mother/Bright Mother.

Known as the Canticle of the Supernal Sun prayer [2]

There is no thing fairer on the Earth than She,
Nor any thing upon the Heaven, fairer.
Before Her splendour, does the noon-day Sun
burn as the dying embers of a fire.
Madria Déa,
does not Thy Spirit breathe in all created things?
Is not all darkness scattered by Thy Fire?
And but for Thee, would not all the cosmos decompose?
Would not the black abyss of chaos swallow all?
And as Thine universal music reins the furthest spheres,
so does it tune the beating of my heart.
For as the running doe longs for the cooling streams,
so is my soul athirst for Thy dear Grace;
and as long-hunger brings the limbs to weakness,
trembles my soul for confluence with Thee.
Have pity on my soul and end its trembling.
Fill it with the good nourishment of Thy Love.
For there is no thing other than will cool its fever
and there is no way other it shall find content.
O, let my soul be chastened by its suffering.
O, let it care no longer for its pride;
O, let it cry to Thee in childlike trustfulness;
let it be humbled in Thy gentle Light.
Of mine own self, I can accomplish nothing;
only so far as Thou art acting through me.
How dull my soul is, like the ashes of a fire;
but, piercèd through with Thine Eternal Rays,
is it not radiant as the noon-day sun?
There is no thing fairer on the Earth than Thee,
nor any thing upon the Heaven fairer.

All prayers are optional and not mandatory. May you be guided by Déa along your soul-path.
