Through the Harp

Ode 5
1 As the wind glides through the harp and the strings speak,

2 So the Spirit of the Lord speaks through my members, and I speak through
His love.

3 For He destroys whatever is alien, and everything is of the Lord.

4 For thus it was from the beginning, and will be until the end.

5 So that nothing shall be contrary, and nothing shall rise up against Him.

6 The Lord has multiplied his knowledge, and He was zealous that those
things should be known which through His grace have been given to us.

7 And His praise He gave us on account of His name, our spirits praise His
Holy Spirit.

8 For there went forth a stream, and it became a river great and broad;
indeed it carried away everything, and it shattered and brought it to the
Temple.

9 And the barriers which were built by men were not able to restrain it,
nor even the arts of them who habitually restrain water.

10 For it spread over the surface of all the earth, and it filled everything.

11 Then all the thirsty upon the earth drank, and thirst was relieved and
quenched – for from the Most High the drink was given.

12 Blessed, therefore, are the ministers of that drink, who have been
entrusted with His water.

13 They have refreshed the parched lips, and have aroused the paralysed will.

14 Even living persons who were about to expire, they have held back from
death.

15 And limbs which have collapsed, they have restored and set up.

16 They gave strength for their coming, and light for their eyes.

17 Because everyone recognised them as belonging to Il’Ya, and lived by
the living water of eternity. Halleluyah.
