Thirty-ninth Verse

Ecclesiastical Calculation

Thirteenth Week

  Surrendering to spirit revelation
  I gain the light of cosmic being;
  The power of thinking, growing clearer,
  Gains strength to give myself to me,
  And quickening there frees itself
  From thinker's energy my sense of self.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  An Geistesoffenbarung hingegeben
  Gewinne ich des Weltenwesens Licht.
  Gedankenkraft, sie wächst
  Sich klärend mir mich selbst zu geben,
  Und weckend löst sich mir
  Aus Denkermacht das Selbstgefühl.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  Devoted whole to Spirit's revelation
  I win as my reward
  the Light that is the substance of the world;
  Mind, grown more clear,
  lets noe my Self appear;
  hid in the might of Thought true Selfhood shakes
  its sleeping wings and wakes.
