Evening Devotion to Isis
Hail Isis,glorious Goddes,day is done and the night is come,
The sun is set and the stars emerge.This is the evening rite,
The rite to end the day of light.
Let Your instrument sound Your name,
Hailing You with all homage,Isis, glorious Goddess.
To the candles wick the match I raise
On the altar set to You,Isis,glorious Goddess.
And the nighttime incense rises,sweetly mixed,
To put me in the mind of perceiving You,Isis,
glorious Goddes.Who rises behind me like a flame of gold
And brushes my back with deft wings.
I make open the nape of my neck to You.
Let Your portal welcome You,O Isis, Great and glorious Goddess.
Up my hands rise and hold The curved bow of exaltation,
And rise once more To the sharp angle Of invocation.
Come, oh great and glorious Goddess,
Come in the fullness of force and love,
Let Your garment for a moment clothe You,
O Isis,Goddess great and glorious.
