The Eucharistic Pure Oblation: An Essene Service
An introductory chant may be chanted or a hymn or song may be sung.
With the people standing
Patriarch/Matriarch: Peace be onto all you who are in readiness to give your right hands to the truth of God
Members of the Order: And also with You!
With the people still standing
Patriarch/Matriarch: Glory, honor, praise and worship be to God; the Father, Spouse, and Son: One with the Mother, Bride and Maid: From Whom proceedeth the Eternal Spirit: By whom are all created things. From the Ages of Ages. Now: and to the Ages of Ages
Members of the Order: Amun-Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
The following hymn is sung or said, all standing:
Everyone: I have reached the inner vision
and through Thy spirit in me
I have heard Thy wondrous secret.
Through Thy mystic insight
Thou hast caused a spring of knowledge
to well up within me,
a fountain of power,
pouring forth living waters,
a flood of love
and of all embracing wisdom
like the splendor of eternal Light.
From: The "Book of Hymns" of the Dead Sea Scrolls
