(13)
Submitted by level
1. First Prayer (5:43)
Omnis humana cogitatio in fundamentis putrefactionis conditur, quam ecclesia Domini nostri ei praeposuit.

Lungs filled with embers and regurgitating boiling blood I say Praise the Lord, praise, O servants of the Lord...We will sing a new song to thee, O God: a psaltery of thirteen Stations, may scoria bury Eden and blind the light of hope...
2. Sola Fide I (5:13)
O Satan, I acknowledge you as the Great Destroyer of the Universe.
All that has been created you will corrupt and destroy.
Exercise upon me all your rights.
I spit on Christ's redemption and to it I shall renounce.
My life is yours Lord, let me be your herald and executioner.
My actions shall lead other hearts away from salvation
All shall acknowledge Your sacred royalty and crawl in terrified devotion.

Where is the book of truth, or the inheritance that'd enlighten me?
No voice shall answer to my probe and throbbing prayers...
But certainty and madness write in ashen letters

Seest thou how faith wrought with his works
And by works was faith made perfect?

And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and He in him.
And hereby we know that He abideth in us, by the Spirit which He hath given us.

"The essence of Revelation lies in the fact that it is the direct speech of god to man"
3. Sola Fide II (7:53)
They burst my veins to pieces, these wan rats inside
With their jaws so contagious of a disease
As if it dropped like pus from the twelve wings of Sammael
The primeval light inside, gift of god and the holy spirit
It bleeds, so swollen by the bubo of this pest divine
The least traces of the consolation of Eden
Were consumed by this heinous blessing in ashes.

Sola Fide. Sola Deo Infernali Gloria.

Verily I say unto you, there is none righteous enough to resist, no, not one....
For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity;
Your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perversity.
The heart of a lost angel is in the earth, the immaculate is abased... forevermore.

Sola Fide. Sola Deo Infernali Gloria.

Neither stormful convulsions nor an apex of light shall break the yoke
For he that keepeth His commandments dwelleth in him, and He in him.
And hereby we know that He abideth in us, by the Spirit which He hath given us

Some rejoice of the children's innocence and smiles
Others of their shameful defloration by the ministers of Christ, swollen by arrogance and lust
Jesus spoke words of wisdom: "Let the children come to me"
What's more enthralling indeed than ruining through them the genesis of life itself?
Dive deep into the blue eyes of the newborn and thou shalt get a glance of heaven
When this dive reveals despair, hideous ruins and the glory of Hell
The serving sons of disobedience proclaim
Vengeance belongeth unto Him...

Sola Fide. Sola Deo Infernali Gloria.

Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy,
who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant?
Faith and devotion shall be the stones to the temple
Fanaticism and intransigence ignite the flaming crown of malign essence
That is Your host, Lord, and our burden.
Hosanna!

Fanaticism and intransigence ignite the flaming crown of malign essence
That is Your host, Lord, and our burden.
Hosanna!

"The essence of Revelation lies in the fact that it is the direct speech of god to man"

Sola Fide. Sola Deo Infernali Gloria.
Seest thou how faith wrought with his works
And by works was faith made perfect?

Sola Fide. Sola Deo Infernali Gloria.
My god and lord of this earth,
you shall henceforth be the sole object of my thoughts.

Sola Fide. Sola Deo Infernali Gloria.
Wilt thou know, O vain man,
that faith without works is dead?
4. Second Prayer (4:41)
Oh Satan, you're the God before whom I stand
Live your life in me,
See how I erase my name from the lamb's book of life
And reject the benefit of the holy wounds
I will walk before thee, lord, in the land of the living
For you teacheth my hands to war and my fingers to fight
And sow seeds that do not proceed of the natural order
They shall grow to columns of the holy lair
That which harbours the dragon with seven heads.

Ita est putrefactio Dei similes, sive materialis substantia spiritus Domini in orbe terrarum.

How long will ye halt between two opinions?
Realise! That your body is the temple of the living God!
Thou shalt open my lippes, (O Lorde) my mouthe shal shewe thy prayse.

Ita est putrefactio Dei similes, sive materialis substantia spiritus Domini in orbe terrarum
5. Blessed are the Dead Whiche Dye in the Lorde (5:47)
Stare wide-eyed at this dense pitch boiling by the art divine
Amniotic liquid of another kind
That flesh and blood can not inherit the kingdom of god
Behold the transformation, servant
Incise and devour your tongue for all men are liars
Gnaw at the saintly visage of your beloved
Receive a rapturous communion of flesh and skin
And do not cease until you swallowed her nose host-alike
Do not cease until the Baptist collects
Three quintessential drops, progeny of that torment,
And anoints you thrice ... and anoints you thrice... and anoints you thrice...
Like a malignant tumour and sudden growth of cancer divine
A rebirth in putrefaction irreversible, corruption does not inherit uncorruption
Blessed are the dead whiche dye in the Lorde
Say it loud the ultimate paradigm: Blessed are the dead whiche dye in the Lorde
The sting of death is sin and the strength of sin is the law
The law of man is His presence and dominion...
We will submit ourselves unto Him
And henceforth walk in His ways
And immolate on thine altar the spirit of individuality
As thou, Lord, desireth sacrifices and obedience
What rewarde shall I geve unto the lorde, for al the benefites that he hath doen unto me?
We will submit ourselves unto Him
And henceforth walk in His ways
And immolate on thine altar the spirit of individuality
As thou, Lord, desireth sacrifices and obedience
We grant you all human love, kiss the burden that crushes our bones
And yell ecstatically at the spectacle of your abominations
What rewarde shall I geve unto the lorde, for al the benefites that he hath doen unto me?
6. Hétoïmasia (7:08)
Hearken, thou, until I relate things
that shall come to pass in latter ages of the world,
for we are the seeds of the triumph yet to come...
Only a few, in the multitudes upon earth,
shall be aware of what they do, but all will court the assassination of Christ's redemption, again and again...
Their apparent choice of the cross against the serpent
Hides nothing, from north to south, but a call for chastisement
The sins of men will stink more than a pestilence before God...
What a balm for the soul of those who respire hellfire
To witness Abraham sacrifice his firstborn.
Amen!
Contemplate and say, what is earth, else than a frenetic psalmody for His venue?
Arise O Lord. Let not man prevail... visionary words indeed
For man is the key and man is the device
And out of his ranks shall arise the saviour draped in the blood of the unborn
Scriptures say "We do not think him to be the devil or a demon as some others do
but one of mankind in whom Satan shall dwell totally...
for he is the man of sin, the son of perdition,
such that he will seat himself in the Temple as if he were God"
Woe to thee Corozain... woe to thee Bethsaida... and thou Capharnaum
that art exalted up to heaven, thou shalt be thrust down to hell...
For he will grow from child to man and extirpate souls in a devilish whirl from your cursed bosom.
Fraught voices rise to the sky and beseech god to avert the incarnation
But mankind was the prism to the quintessence of corruption
Contemplate and say, what is earth, else than a frenetic psalmody for His venue?
What joy and glory shouts he who bears the mark of the Beast
Consumed and eaten have been the abundant abortions of mankind, but now,
none of them, humans, shall remain but what birds could not carry off in their claws!
7. Third Prayer (3:57)
Ere thou enter farther in such mysteries, comprehend:
The secret of the Lord is for those who fear Him and He will make them know His covenant.
Amen.
Cursed is he that removeth awaye the marke of hys master to please men and not to serve in secrecy.
Amen.
Blessed is he that maketh the blinde to goe oute of hys waye.
Amen.
Cursed is he that putteth his truste in man, and taketh manne for his defence, and in his harte goeth from the Lorde. The lord prevails.
Amen.
Blessed is he that taketh rewarde to slea the soule of innocent bloude.
Amen.
Blessed is he that murders Christ in himself and in his fellow men.
Amen.
8. Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice (6:31)
Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice
The monument of a deceiving spirit
Of myriads of deceiving spirits born of our godly father
Thou that acknowledgest the son, do not deny the father
Rather, stand up with the twenty four elders and say
Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!
Accept the truth revealed in Emmanuel
And listen: one Lord, one faith, one baptism
All that He decides is holy, all that He says is law
Do not worship Him by kneeling before Him if in thine heart
Is no true joy at the sight of Ariel covered by the ashes of devastation.
Do not worship Him unless your soul glitters of the purity of sin
And of unearthly virtues.
It shall truly contain the vision of the fallen tabernacle of David,
That which brought forth our Elisha that ignites in flames so pure.
Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice
Let no human knowledge impeach Divine Truths
Nor any mists of incredulity prevent your mind
From touching Divine Mysteries, hear the voice:
Before Abraham was I am
Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice
Drink from the grail He sanctified when
The frail saviour failed to raise up
The destroyed temple in three days
And open your purged mind
To Divine Oracles:
May the tributes of faith be rendered to Faith.
Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice
I shall descend in humiliation before Thee
And ascend before men only if thy will ordains me
In the midst of my carnal temple shall forevermore
Sound these tremendous words
Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!
Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!
Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!
9. Odium Nostrum (4:45)
"-Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy." Psalm 99:3

Let them praise thy great and terrible name;
for it is holy

Odium
Oh Merciless Hatred;
Spare nothing, spare no one
Oppressive heat, intense flavour
From the pupil of the one-eyed mongrel to the distant depths of the macrocosm
We are all waiting for the releasing hour

Praise the God of our salvation;
Hosts on high, His power proclaim

Odium
Oh Merciless Hatred;
Burn the Me in me,
And thus every cell of humanity.
May the essence of impurity redeem my soul
Unleashed hatred be my salvation and thy ghoul

Worship, honor, glory, blessing,
Odium, we offer unto Thee.
Young and old, Thy praise expressing,
In glad homage bend the knee.
All demons in hell adore Thee;
We would bow before Thy throne.
As His angels serve before Thee,
So on earth Thy will be done.

Worship, honor, glory, blessing,
Odium, we offer unto Thee.
Young and old, Thy praise expressing,
In glad homage bend the knee.
All demons in hell adore Thee;
We would bow before Thy throne.
As His angels serve before Thee,
So on earth Thy will be done.
Wherefore He also hath highly exalted it, and given it a name which is above every name:

That at the name of Odium every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
And that every tongue should confess that Odium is Lord, to the glory of Satan our Master.
10. Jubilate Deo (O Be Joyful in the Lord) (6:07)
From the Thirteen Apostles men
Pregnant nymphets hast they become
Defiled with divine faeces;
Despicable rot, tortured flesh

Those eyes have witnessed.

Organic procreation, mind-intromission; there comes the salvation
Pubescent vaginas obstructed with the redeemer's holy essence
Humanity reduced to its supreme worthlessness;
Children under His will, Ethic fulfilled

Those eyes were deceived.

Little children, praise the Lord, Praise ye the Lord!
This is the day which He hath made; all will rejoice and be glad in it

Born with the ability of begetting
Only but One gift were she granted
To excrete a new humanity unwanted
Reluctantly she - woman - loves the god of a creation within

Those eyes have sinned.

Praise the Lord in His benevolence
For the disadvantage and their simplicity
Rape, incest, and insouciance
Of a magnificent power of unforeseen despondency

Those eyes lied zealously

Praise Him for His blessed act, Praise ye the Lord!
This is the day which He hath made; all will rejoice and be glad in it

Innocence sacrificed and heaven denied
Iniquity divine - no repentance - over mankind
Mind-raped, self-devoured, empty god-eyed
Transgression coercive, Redemption never to be found

Those eyes were blind

Under the altar of cannibalism
Man hast (thou) confessed the spiritual schism
And without pride mourned the loss of freedom,
Our blessed Lord have condemned you to martyrdom

Those eyes saw wisdom

Praise the Lord, for He is glorious; Praise ye the Lord!
This is the day which He hath made; all will rejoice and be glad in it

Inter spem et metum
Inter spem et metum
Inter spem et metum
Inter spem et metum
Inter spem et metum
Inter spem et metum
Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord, praise ye the Lord.
11. Carnal Malefactor (11:44)
Below the lid of a vast rounded monument
Trickling of gristly vestiges and whacked hopes
Enhanced by the horrible excess of fetid exhalation
And uterine strangulation by the wreaths
Of the herds astray, arid in despair, blessed
With dilated flakes of fire, slowly wafting down...
Say, what does a maternal heart feel when merely
Vinegar stills your child's thirst?
You'd implore to harbour his torment in your chest...
To make his burden yours, but... Sacrilege!
Who are you, harlot, to interfere with His emerald will
When even your glance should never leave the soil?

There resides the fusion, there is the nucleus
Angel prick and holy semen,
And a woman genuflecting an aroused beast of burden alike
Seduced by the father and seducing the son
There resides the fusion, there is the nucleus
A phallic communion that sanctifies interior wastelands

He that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption
Carnal malefactor, rub your sterile wriggling womb
With a candle in reverential contemplation
And give voluptuous harbour to vile insects
He that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption
The scorpion shall open the book of Salomon for you to see
And the snake slither out of the lips that delivered once
The redeemer of man, born out of shameful maternity...
He that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption
The lactiferous Beast subjugated reason to appetite
Praised be human nature, ciborium of shame and waste,
For bathing in decline a redeemer moisty of semen so contemptible

There resides the fusion, there is the nucleus
Angel prick and holy semen,
And a woman genuflecting an aroused beast of burden alike
Seduced by the father and seducing the son
There resides the fusion, there is the nucleus
A phallic communion that sanctifies interior wastelands
When a woman is knead by the claws of fowls attracted
By seminal odours no longer hidden by dignity
And purified by their beaks rummaging her swollen vagina
When laments alter into praises despite holy duty and menacing perdition
Seers can say that his birth does death subdue no more
His birth does death subdue not, for my God proceeds of failed humility...
O Master, the eastern pillar of your domination is the organic fallibility.
12. Drink the Devil's Blood (4:31)
Come to Him in belief, accept truth as lies and lies as truth
Does the first candle burn or is it ashen cold?
Grace or Damnation?
Come to Him in belief, and see not the secret of Heaven
But of earth; a prodigy of great magnitude.

Drink the Devil's Blood
Holy essence that consumes even the stars
Drink the Devil's Blood
Drink and become the poison of earth and man
Drink the Devil's Blood and become
One of His million hands; One of His million eyes
One of His million brains shining with utmost devotion
A molecule of The One with many faces
While of thy soul remains but ashes cold...

This funeral bell and its sacred sound
Haunting always and no more peace
Nor redemption, but moribund ecstasy...
And the glory to serve as one among many

Drink the Devil's Blood: Necessitas medii
Drink the Devil's Blood: Necessitas praecepti
Holy essence that consumes even the stars
Drink the Devil's Blood
Drink and become the poison of earth and man
Drink the Devil's Blood and become
One of His million hands; One of His million eyes
One of His million brains shining with utmost devotion
A molecule of The One with many faces
While of thy soul remains but ashes cold...
13. Malign Paradigm (3:39)
Dei nostri templum terrarum orbus est.
