A selection from the Prayer of Saint Paul in Alan Jacobs' The Essential Gnostic Gospels:
Redeem me, I AM is yours,
from you I've emerged.
Ransom my illuminated soul for eternity and my Spirit.
Reveal to my mind the original perfection of your grace.
Show me what eyes of angels haven't seen,
what ears of emperors, haven't yet heard,
what hasn't yet visited the hearts of men and women,
who have become angelic! after the emblem of the living God
when he was formed at the genesis,
for I've great faith possessed by hope.
For yours is the Kingdom, the glory, the worship,
and the magnificence for ever and ever,
The wording seems strange at parts, and that's the Gnosticism coming out. I cut out parts of the prayer, hence the "a selection" clarification above. Some of the phrases are just so beautiful. I love the entire "Show me what eyes of angels" section, and I just love the "magnificence" at the end. It's a very underused term, and that's unfortunate, because God is magnificent!
