Mumford and Sons - Roll away your stone

Posted by Pelgrim on 4th January 2011

Roll away your stone, I’ll roll away mine
Together we can see what we will find
Don’t leave me alone at this time,
For I’m afraid of what I will discover inside

Cause you told me that I would find a hole,
Within the fragile substance of my soul
And I have filled this void with things unreal,
And all the while my character it steals

Darkness is a harsh term don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I see

It seems that all my bridges have been burned,
But you say that’s exactly how this grace thing works
It’s not the long walk home that will change this heart,
But the welcome I receive with the restart

Darkness is a harsh term don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I see
Darkness is a harsh term don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I’ve seen

Stars hide your fires,
These here are my desires
And I will give them up to you this time around
And so, I’ll be found with my stake stuck in this ground
Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul

hide your fires,
These here are my desires
And I won’t give them up to you this time around
And so, I’ll be found with my stake stuck in this ground
Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul

But you, you’ve gone too far this time
You have neither reason nor rhyme
With which to take this soul that is so rightfully mine

The unknowable God made manifest - in the light of Christ!

Posted by Pelgrim on 4th January 2011

“For you, my God and Creator, are beyond nature,
alltogether beyond all substance.
But the reflection of Your divine glory,
is seen by us as a pure light, a gentle light.
It is revealed as light,
it unites itself withus as light:
a light that one contemplates in spirit from afar,
a light which is suddenly seen within us” - Hymns of Divine Love 24  

“But, Oh, what intoxication of light, Oh, what movements of fire!
Oh, what swirlings of the flame in me, miserable one that I am,
coming from You and Your glory!
The glory I know it and I say it is your Holy Spirit,
who has the same nature with You, and the same honor, O word;
He is of the same race, the same glory,
of the same essence, He alone with your Father,
and with you, O Christ, O God of the universe!
I fall down in adoration before You.
I thank You that You have made me worthy to know, however little it may be,
the power of Your divinity.” - Hymns of Divine Love 25   

“Then He mingles with the soul, but does not blend with it.
The One who is pure essence is entirely united with the essence of the soul
… How I cannot tell. The two become One.
The soul is united with its Creator,
and the Creator is in the soul, totally with the soul alone. ” - Hymns of Divine Love 30
