The Great Invocation

From the point of Light within the Mind of Good

Let light stream forth into human hearts

Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God

Let love stream forth into human hearts

May love increase on Earth.

From the center where the Will of God is known

Let purpose guide human will–

The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the center which we call the human race

Let the Plan of Love and Light work out

And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
