Springing from powers of the Sun,
Radiant spirit-powers, blessing all worlds!
For Michael's garment of rays
You are predestined by Divine Thought.
He, the Christ messenger, reveals in you —
Bearing humankind aloft — the sacred will of worlds.
You, the radiant beings of ether worlds,
Bear the Christ-Word to human beings.
Thus shall the herald of Christ appear
To the thirstily waiting souls
To whom your Word of Light shines forth
In the cosmic age of the Spirit Human Being.
You, the disciples of spirit knowledge,
Take Michael's beckoning wisdom;
Take the Word of Love of the Will of Worlds
Into your soul's aspiring, fervently!
— Rudolf Steiner
