Invocation to Sekhmet

As it was at Memphis,
So be it now!

Hear me, I beseech Thee,
O Powerful One!

Lady of Rekht,
Lady of Pekhet,
Lady of Set,
Lady of Rehesaui,
Lady of Tchar and of Sehert!

Mother in the Horizon of Heaven,
In the Boat of Millions of Years,
Thou art the Great Defender!
Thou art Overthrower of Qetu!
Preserve us from the evil chamber
of the souls of Hes-hra!
Deliver us from
the abode of Fiends!

O Thou Who Art

Sekhmet, Life-Giver to the Gods,
Sekhmet, Lady of Flame,
Sekhmet, Great One of Magic,
Sekhmet, Eternal Is Thy Name!
O, Hear me now!

Sekhmet, With Lioness head,
Sekhmet, Whose Colour is Red,
Sekhmet, Daughter of Ra,
Sekhmet, Consort of Ptah,
Sekhmet, Mighty is Thy Name!
O, Hear me now!

Sekhmet, Goddess of Pestilence,
Sekhmet, Goddess of Wars,
Sekhmet, Queen of the Wastelands,
Sekhmet, Terrible is thy Name!
O, Come to me!

Sekhmet, Destroyer of Rebellions,
Sekhmet, Scorching Eye of Ra,
Sekhmet, Protector, Ruler,
Sekhmet, Holy is Thy Name!
O, Reveal Thyself to me!

Sekhmet, Mother of the Gods,
Sekhmet, Mistress of the Crowns,
Sekhmet, Thou art called Only One,
Sekhmet, Beloved is Thy Name!
Possess me now, O Great One!

Sekhmet, Greater than Isis,
Sekhmet, Greater than Hathor,
Sekhmet, Greater than Bast,
Sekhmet, Greater than Maat,
Sekhmet, Mysterious is Thy Name!
I am lost in mystery!

Sekhmet, Pre-eminent One,
Sekhmet, Light beyond Darkness,
Sekhmet, Sovereign of Her Father,

Sekhmet, Hidden is Thy Name!
Rapturous my dying!

Lady of Amt,
Lady of Manu,
Lady of Sa,
Lady of Tep-nef,
Lady of Heaven!

Thou art Ammi-seshet,
Destroyer, Upholder!
Thou art the Terror
Before Which fiends tremble!
Thou art Lust!
Thou art Life!
Ever-Burning ONE!

Mistress of Enchantments,
Source and Word of Power,
Forbidden is Thy Name!

I am the sealed one!

Do not consume us
With Thy Fire,
Give us Light!

O Lady, Mightier than the Gods,
Adoration rises unto Thee!
All beings hail Thee!
O Lady, Mightier than the Gods!

Preserved beyond Death,
That Secret Name,
O Being Called Sekhmet.

At the Throne of Silence,
even, shall no more
be spoken than
Encircling One!

I lose myself in Thee!

Great Goddess Isis

Great Goddess Isis

Exhortation of Isis

You are She in the dust of whose feet is the hosts of Heaven,
Whose body encircles the Universe,
Who turns the Earth in its orb,
Who gives light to the Sun,
Who rules the World.

You tread death underfoot.
To Thee, the stars are responsive,
To Thee the seasons turn and the Gods rejoice
And the elements are in subjugation.

You are She that is the natural Mother of all things,
Mistress and governor of all elements,
The initial progeny of worlds,
Chief of Divine powers,
Queen of Heaven,
Principle of all the Gods celestial and the light of Goddesses.

At Your will are disposed the planets of the air,
The wholesome winds of the seas
And the silences of the unseen world.
