34 LIBER CMXIII 9. O Thou God of the Nothingness of All Things! Thou who art neither the forge of eternity; nor the thunder-throated womb of Chaos: O Thou who art not found in the hissing of the hail-stones; nor in the rioting of the equinoctial storm! I deny Thee by the powers of mine understanding; Bring me in the unity of Thy might, and feast me on the honeyed manna of Thine all-pervading Nothingness; for Thou art all and none of these in the fullness of Thy Not-being. 10. O Thou God of the Nothingness of All Things! Thou who art neither the traces of the chariot; nor the pole of galloping delusion: O Thou who art not the pivot of the whole Universe; nor the body of the woman-serpent of the stars! I deny Thee by the powers of mine understanding; Lead me in the unity of Thy might, and drawn me unto the threshold of Thine all-pervading Nothingness; for Thou art all and none of these in the fullness of Thy Not-being. 11. O Thou God of the Nothingness of All Things! Thou who art neither the moaning of a maiden; nor the electric touch of fire-thrilled youth: O Thou who art not found in the hardy kisses of love; nor in the tortured spasms of madness and of hate. I deny Thee by the powers of mine understanding; Weight me in the unity of Thy might, and roll me in the poisoned rapture of Thine all-pervading Nothingness; for Thou art all and none of these in the fullness of Thy Not-being.

THE TREASURE-HOUSE OF IMAGES 12. O Thou God of the Nothingness of All Things! Thou who art neither the primal cause of causes; nor the soul of what is, or was, or will be: O Thou who art not measured in the motionless balance; nor smitted by the arrow-flights of man! I deny Thee by the powers of mine understanding; Shield me in the unity of Thy might, and reckon me aright in the span of Thine all-pervading Nothingness; for Thou art all and none of these in the fullness of Thy Not-being. 13. O Thou God of the Nothingness of All Things! Thou who art neither the breathing influx of life; nor the iron ring i’ the marriage feast of death: O Thou who art not shadowèd forth in the songs of war; nor in the tears and lamentaitons of a child! I deny Thee by the powers of mine understanding; Sheathe me in the unity of Thy might, and kindle me with the grey flame of Thine all-pervading Nothingness; for Thou art all and none of these in the fullness of Thy Not-being. O Glory be unto Thee through all Time and through all Space : Glory, and Glory upon Glory, Everlastingly. Amen, and Amen, and Amen. 35
