RITE OF THE NEW DAY

(Make the Sign of the Creator's Name)

Minister: Beloved brethren, we have met this morning in
solemn service to seek the Light of Heaven
and the Ways of the Eternal. May our desires be
free from earth, and in looking upward may we
find our hearts aspiring unto the Source of All
Strength. Let us this day renew our faith, and
the Father will reveal Himself unto us, and in
our lives we shall see all things working
sweetly according to His Holy Will. Let us seek
the Light in prayer. (kneel, bow heads)


All: Jehovih who rulest in heaven and earth, hallowed
be Thy Name, and reverent amongst men.
Sufficient unto me is my bread, and as much as I
forgive those that trespass against me, so make
Thou me steadfast to shun temptation, for all
honor and glory are Thine, worlds without end.
Amen.


(All Rise and Chant)


YAD

Praise be unto Thee, Jehovih! Who can search out the completeness of Thy creation? Or know the magnitude of Thy places, Thou Almighty! And Thy endless inventions? Thou shalt be my theme forever; to find the far-seeing devices of my Creator, the work of my soul. I was alone in the world. Angels and men fed not my soul; I was hungered and in gloom. Then I turned to Thee, Thou Almighty. And Thou gavest me a new growth, a fruit of life in fire! Which grew brighter and brighter. And my vision was recovered, and Thy heavens were opened as a book is opened. And I drank of Thy waters, and ate of the tree of the resurrection to Thy everlasting kingdoms. The secret of Thy wisdom, O Jehovih, was uncovered; the way of Thy mightiness made imperishable forever!


SON

Because Thou gavest into mine own hand to exalt myself, O Jehovih! For perpetual resurrection shapedst my every part before I knew the way of the Almighty! Praise be unto Thee forever! Saith the Faithist! Because Thou providest from the ancient times for Thy Mighty word. From everlasting Thou hast provided prophets to know the way of the Omnipotent! To reveal the unseen heavens created by
Thee! Because Thou hast kept alive the line of Thy Majesty in mortals! Built a house for Thy chosen wide as the world! Faith in Thee above all things, saith the Faithist! When all the world beside faileth, Thou, my Creator, standest before me Mighty and full of love. Thou One Alone, imperishable forever, and just and merciful. Praise be unto Thee, Jehovih, Who art greater than All!

(all seated)

READING

Minister: O Light of Lights, we come before Thy
Shrine this morning, our hearts full of
thanksgiving for the knowledge that has
come to us of Thy Great Magnitude -
for Thou hast revealed Thyself in the Light
that cometh to our souls. Wherefore we cry:
Hail! Holy Light! Creator Supreme! May Thy
Love abound in us, that we may bring forth
the fruits of Thy In-Dwelling-Gifts of the
Spirit and growth unto life eternal. May
we, in realizing the nearness of the
world of Es, be lifted up on the wings of
faith unto the gates of the everlasting
day. That the knowledge that Thou art in
the seen and unseen be truly revealed to
us; that never more shall doubt walk by our
side; and that the higher self be unfolded;
we petition this morn that Thou wilt hear
our supplication unto Thee, which we make
in the full knowledge that rule of growth
needs a pure desire on our part and a
receptiveness for the response thereto.
For we are assured, and our experience hath
ever shown, that Thy Will is done by Thy
ministering angels who work in the soul of
things.

Minister: All who are assembled are now invited to
join in the Litany.

Precentor: Father, grant us the peace of Thy Presence.

transcend corpor.
Precentor: May the spiritual worlds be revealed to us.

Response: Give us of Thy Love.
Precentor: Give us strength in the hour of our trial.
Response: Grace in the hour of temptation.
Precentor: That we be efficient in Thy service, may
physical strength increase.
Response: May Om the power to receive be ours.
Precentor: And Na the going forth in might be our
praise.
Response: O One All Mind, quicken our minds in right
thought.
Precentor: Quicken our hearts in sympathy.
Response: Teach us dispassion and empathy.
Precentor: Give us thine Ahoma.
Response: May Agni, the Light of Thy True Presence,
burn within us.
Precentor: May all that is untrue fail before Thee.
Response: May the unreal give place to the real.
Precentor: Father! I rejoice in Thee.
Response: O Om! My heart rests in Thee.
Precentor: Jehovih! Thou leadest me through Thine
angels.
Response: Therefore I do not fear.
Precentor: E'en in the valley of death will I rejoice.
Response: For my Es'ean home is beyond.
Precentor: Quicken my feet, O Father!
Response: May the hour of worship ever call me.
Precentor: Teach me Thy wise decrees.
Response: May I do my utmost in Thy service.
Precentor: And when the light of the higher
mysteries breaketh o'er my soul.
Response: May I still seek Thee in deepest humility.
Precentor: So shall my spirit shine with Thy Glory.
Response: And when I enter the etherean worlds at
last.
Precentor: Then shall I know Thine Orian Gods.
Response: But even now may Etherea be born within me.
Precentor: And the wisdom of Thy Holy Angels grow upon
my soul.
Response: May I learn forgiveness.
Precentor: May I find a fuller revelation of Thee in
Love Adorable.
Response: May Aheba be revealed to me.
Precentor: And Amereth be revealed to me.
Response: May my troubled heart receive Thy
consolation.

All: Come, therefore, O Great Spirit! Sanctify
and renew again Thy dwelling place - my
soul. Amen.

Minister: Now shall descend the angel ministers
coming from spheres where harmony prevails.
They understand our fears and our
misgivings, and in love bestow that which
the soul most needs. As the incense rises,
let us rise in thought to meet them, that
in blending with the light they bring we
may receive the benediction of the All
Highest. Jehovih has said, 'I am not far
away. Behold, I am with thee.' So through
the ministrations of His Holy Angels we
shall become filled with His Grace and be
renewed in spirit. Therefore let us put
aside earthly cares and unite with the
glorious Company of Heaven. Then shall we
know the beauty of true communion.

Minister: May the Light be upon us all! Amen.

All: Unfold within us Thine attributes, O
Jehovih that we may manifest forth Thy
Light. May Thine angels now draw near and
in this sacred communion aid us all. Amen.

COMMUNION (music)

PRAYER OF THANKS

Minister: Children of the Father's Kingdom, having
received that which the soul required, let
us now take our separate ways. Let our
hearts dwell in the Unity and may we ever
aspire in the way of the Higher Life, being
true to our higher selves. Seeking the
Good, the Beautiful. So shall the Sun
Eternal shine upon us and His Power reside
in us, now and forever. Amen.

Minister: Jehovih's Light be upon you all.

All: Jehovih keep thee! Amen.

RITE OF THE NEW MOON


BELL

Minister: Let my chosen consecrate the holy days
during each new moon, for on these days do
My ashars change the watch. Watch ye for
the new moon and glorify the Great Spirit
that The One may prosper ye.

(All Make the Sign of the Creator's Name)

All: The Creative Whole is on every side; Here,
upward and onward, forever!

BLESSINGS

BELL

Minister: Let us attune ourselves to the All Light.

(All march in a circle)

All: I am the Sun of suns, saith Jehovih. I am
the All One; without Me, nothing is nor
was, nor ever shall be. For I am Master
and Possessor of all, worlds without
number. Husband and wife I have made one,
and they shall be the key and model of My
Kingdom. To obtain harmony all people
shall be attuned to Me; without Me, only I,
man cannot discover the way.

BELL

Minister: This I perceive: to make the man and wife
one; to make the man, wife and child one;
to make the village one; to make the state
one; to make the empire one; all harmony,
as one instrument, cannot be done without a
Central Sun, a Creator, to attune to. When
a man is attuned to the All One, and a
woman is attuned to the All One, they will
themselves be as one. When the family and
village are attuned to the All One, it is
easy. Without the All One, harmony cannot
be. Eolin, the Creator, then, must be first
in all things, nearest of all places.

All: In Thee, Jehovih, will I have faith. 0
Jehovih, mighty in heaven, hallowed be Thy
name! May I never forget Thee nor set
myself up against Thee nor Thy Kingdoms!

BELL

Minister: Make ye a covenant with Jehovih that your
pledges may be recorded in high heaven.
Consider your words, for Jehovih is
Ever-Present and heareth all done in His /
Her name. Angels are also present, who
have no interest in the affairs of men,
save for the redemption of their souls.
That which ye swear shall ye do from this
time forth forever!

All: This, then be my covenant: I will serve
Thee, 0 Jehovih, and no other God, nor
Lord, nor any other person. To Thee only
will I pay homage and adoration, now and
forever. For Thee will I labor, by doing
righteously toward all Thy children, and
equally with all these my brethren, the
Emeth (Faithists) in one Everlasting
Father, Creator of worlds! With all my
might, and my wisdom and love, will I
strive to enlighten my fellow-men and to
lift them up out of darkness. More shall
my labor be for others than for myself,
henceforth forever! And my wealth shall be
given to relieve the helpless and the
distressed. Help me, 0 Jehovih, and make
me strong in this my covenant, now and
forever! Amen.

Minister: This is the Dawn! Behold the Rising Sun!
Ye are now on the road of everlasting
light. Swerve not from your covenant with
Jehovih, and the angels from the second
resurrection will abide with you. Eloih,
through the angels now invest you with Love,
Power and Wisdom. In the name of Eolin, we
salute our Creator in the Sign of the
Triangle.

BELL

COMMUNION

Minister: A greater light I now give unto you, in the
name of Jehovih, which is: That ye shall do
good unto others with all your wisdom and
strength, all the days of your lives; and
that ye shall perceive no evil in any man,
nor woman, nor child, but in their birth and
surroundings.

All: This, also, do I accept of Thee, 0
Jehovih. Help me to swerve not, 0 Thou
Light of my soul, for Thy glory and for the
glory of Thy Universe, forever!

HYMN

Minister: May the Angels of the All Highest be
blessed in their loving service, with Joy
and Peace. 0 Creator, we thank you and
them for the wonderful blessings they have
helped bestow upon us.

All: May we also live our lives as Angels of the
All Light; serving all we can with an
eternal love in our hearts.
