    The Naassene Psalm

    The Law of Universal Genesis,
    was the firstborn nous; the second Chaos
    shed by the firstborn. The third was received
    by the soul. Clad in the shape of a hind
    she is worn away in death's slavery.
    Now she has mastery and glimpses light:
    now she is plunged in misery and weeps.
    Now she is mourned, and herself rejoices.
    Now she weeps and is finally condemned.
    Now she is condemned and finally dies.
    And now she even reaches the point where
    hemmed in by evil, she knows no way out.
    Misled, she has entered a labyrinth.
    Then the Word said: “Behold, Father,
    she wanders the earth pursued by evil.
    Far from thy Breath she is going astray.
    She is trying to flee bitter Chaos,
    and does not know how she is to escape.
    Send me forth, o Father, therefore, and I,
    bearing the seal shall descend and wander
    all Aeons through, all mysteries reveal.
    I shall manifest the forms of the gods
    and teach the secrets of the holy way
    which I call Gnosis.”
