Hathor of Dendera: a Litany


Hathor of Dendera, great is your name
Lady of the Universe, the power is yours
Lady of the Sky, perfect in grace
Mistress of the West, source of all pleasures
Mistress of the East, fount of delight
Red Hair, Bright Hair, hear our prayer
Daughter of Re, raise up our hearts
Mansion of Horus, send us your blessings
Lady of Byblos, come and be with us
Lady of the Sacred Land, come to us
Lady of the Southern Sycamore, come to our call
Lady of the Headland of Manu, come and refresh us
Lady of the House of Jubilation, fill us with joy
You from Khemmis, may you be near us
You from the Land of Silence, bring us peace
Mistress of Turquoise, show us your beauty
Eye of Re, look down on us, shine on us
Storm in the Sky, send us your light
Great Wild Cow of the Marshes, may you sustain us
Twin Sister of Sekhmet the Lioness, be lenient, spare us
Mistress of Nubia, may we rejoice in you
Hathor the Golden, Lady of Heaven, great is your beauty, great is your
name.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
