*******Here's the original German, if you're interested in doing the
eurythmy, for instance:
Aus des Geistes lichten Höhen
Erstrahle Gottes helles Licht
Die suchen wollen
Des Geistes Gnade
Des Geistes Kraft
Des Geistes Sein.
In Seinem Namen
Hier uns versammelt fühlen.
From the luminous heights of the Spirit
May God's clear light ray forth
Into those human souls
Who are intent on seeking
The grace of the Spirit,
The light of the Spirit,
The life of the Spirit.
May He live
In the Hearts,
In the inmmost souls
Of those of us
Who feel ourselves gathered together
In His Name.
This verse was given by Rudolf Steiner in London in 1913 to Mrs. E.R. Cull
for group meetings; it's her translation. It can be found in the book "Verses
