The one true alchemy, the alchemy of the soul.
Into thy laboratorium thy must go and there the work must commence.
Bring not with you so many chemicals,
For all you need is Mercury, Sulphur and salt, but let fire suffice thee.
Separate the earth from fire, the subtle from the gross.
Gently and persistently, it rises from earth to heaven,
And again, it descends to earth,
And receives the power of things above and of things below.
By addition, subtraction and multiplication, the great work is complete.
You have found the universal medicine,
The elusive philosophical stone.
And now you behold the peacock’s tail dancing and ever charming.
Change now which you may into Gold ohh great alchemist
For thou now possess the key for things above and of things below.
