The Cruelty Of The Heavens Lyrics

In the night, the dead stood along the wall, and cried,
"We would have knowledge of God. Where is God? Is God
dead?" God is not dead.

Now, as ever, he liveth. There is a God whom you know
not, for mankind forgot it. We name it by it's name:

Abraxas standeth above the sun and above the devil.

It is improbable probability, unreal reality. Hard to
know is the deity of Abraxas; it's power is greatest
because man perceiveth it not.

From the sun he draweth absolute good, from the Devil,
infinite evil, but from Abraxas: life.

Abraxas is the sun and at the same time, the eternally
sucking gorge of the void.

The power of Abraxas is twofold, but ye see it not,
because for your eyes the warring opposites of this
power are extinguished.

What the Sun-god speaketh is life, what the Devil
speaketh is death, but Abraxas speaketh that of power,
of the cursed word, which is life and death at the same

Abraxas speaketh of truth and lie, of good and evil, of
light and darkness; in the same word and in the same

Wherefore is Abraxas terrible? It is as splendid as the
lion who [something] striketh down it's victim.
It is as beautiful as a day of spring(?).

It is the abundance which seeketh the union with

It is love and love's murder.
It is the saint, and [something] betrayer.

It is the brightest light of day and the darkest night
of madness.

God dwelleth behind the sun, the Devil behind the
night, but God bringeth forth out of light what the
Devil sucketh into the night.

Abraxas is the world: it's becoming, and it's

Upon every gift that cometh from the Sun-god, the Devil
layeth his curse.

Everything that ye entreat from the Sun-god, ye getteth
indeed from the Devil.

Everything that ye create with the Sun-god giveth
effective power to the Devil.

What is terrible Abraxas? It is the delight of the
earth, the cruelty of the heavens.

Before it, there is no question and no reply.
