Consecration prayer for "Hwt-Her Mistress of the Sky"

These are the words of the artisan Ptahmassu,

Beloved of Ptah, the master color artist,

Great Director of Craftsmen in the House of Ptah who has spent his life making images of the Gods,

who propitiates the Gods through the works of his hands, dynamic in the Soul-Mansion of Ptah, whom Ptah the Lord of Ma'at loves:

Rise, O Goddess, bedecked in the trappings of Ra,

Shining of face like the Disk at sunrise,

Acclaimed by the Vault as its mistress,

Heiress of the sky whose embodiment glitters

With fine gold!

Rise, O Hwt-Her, Hand of the Netjer!

Your body, young and perfectly appointed,

Causes Atum to rise in His season,

His passion becoming the verdant land,

His seed bearing the fruit of the Sacred Land.

Rise, O Hwt-Her, the Golden One,

Upon whose brow radiates the Eye of the Disk,

Whose radiation flares as the Cobra Goddess,

Her terror filling the hearts of gods and humankind.

O Beautiful One, the perfect countenance of

Her father in his sky, Ra has lifted you up,

Your body forming the domain of heaven,

Your navel becoming the great Mooring Post.

The Ark of the Day shines by your light!

The Ark of the Night follows your glistening

Thighs into the realm of the Blessed.

Rise, O Hwt-Her, Mansion of the Lofty,

The House of the Falcon, the Residence of the

Elevated One!

Your embodiment is the seat of the Eye,

Whose wholeness becomes you,

Whose powers shine through you,

Whose life is renewed at your coming home

From the south.

Djehuty the Lord of Eight-Town comes out

To hail you, acclaiming your powers, and

Leading you to your throne at the Filling of

The Wedjat Eye.

Rise, O Hwt-Her, Mistress of Turquoise,

Mistress of real Lapis-lazuli, upon whose

Limbs glitters indestructible gold,

That skin of the gods which brings joy

To the hearts of humankind, through whose

Magic the netjeru possess the entire circuit

Of the sun.

Rise, O Goddess, O Hwt-Her, O Mistress of Love,

Lady of Intoxication swimming through the

Thighs of men!

They see you, their hearts beat fast and their

Loins shudder in rapture.

They hear the music of your feet, the shaking

Of your breasts, the swaying of your hips.

All men make a dance for you, you who Grant the joys of lovemaking, the beauty of The flesh.

Rise, O Hwt-Her, the Daughter of Ptah, His Beloved,

The ornament of Ra Whose brow dazzles as the Eye of the Sun!

Come, O Goddess, in peace and in beauty!

Awaken in peace, O Hwt-Her, awaken in beauty.

Awaken in peace, O Golden One, awaken In beauty.

Awaken in peace, O Lady of Life, awaken in Beauty.

Awaken in peace, O Lady of the Green, Awaken in beauty.

Awaken in peace, O Eye of Ra, awaken in beauty.

Awaken in peace, O Mistress of the Sky, awaken in beauty.

Awaken in peace, O Mistress of the West, awaken in beauty.

O Goddess, your holy image is established on earth and

Outshines the circuit of the sun, the zenith of your powers

Becoming this image in the eyes of humankind.

Let all honor be yours in it, and the fruits that come forth

Be all things good and pure!

These are the words of Ptahmassu, having consecrated

This body, this ba of the Great Goddess Hwt-Her,

Calling it after Her "Hwt-Her Mistress of the Sky".
