[Lyrics are taken from the poem by Aleister Crowley]
in the years of the primal course,
in the dawn of terrestrial
Man mastered the mammoth and horse,
and Man was the Lord of the Earth.
He made him an hollow skin
From the heart of
an holy tree,
He compassed the earth therein,
And Man was the Lord of the Sea.
He controlled the vigour of steam,
harnessed the lightning for hire;
He drove the celestial team,
And man was the Lord of the Fire.
Deep-mouthed from their
The choirs of the aeons declare
The last of the demons defeated,
For Man is the Lord of the
Arise, O Man, in thy strength!
The kingdom is thine to inherit,
'Til the high Gods witness at length
that Man is the
Lord of his Spirit.
