                                HYMN TO SATAN

                    I ADORE Thee, King of Evil,
                      By the body Thou hast fashioned
                    In the likeness of a devil.
                      By its purity impassioned
                    I adore Thee, King of Evil!

                    I adore Thee, Lord of Malice,
                      By the soul that Thou hast moulded
                    Lovely as a lily-chalice
                      To the sombre sun unfolded.
                    I adore Thee, Lord of Malice!

                    By its thirst, the cruel craving
                      For things infinite, unheard-of,
                    Dreams devouring and depraving,
                      Songs no God may guess a word of,
                    Songs of crime and songs of craving ---

                    By the drear eyes of the devil
                      Bleak and sterile as they glitter
                    I adore Thee, King of Evil,
                      With these lips, as dry and bitter
                    As the drear eyes of the devil!

                    I adore Thee, I invoke Thee,
                      I abase myself before Thee,
                    By the spells that once awoke the
                      Lust of Chaos I adore Thee,
                    I adore Thee, I invoke Thee! {206}
