Honoring the Great Mother Goddess Isis of Ten Thousand Names


"Divine Isis, Goddess of Ten Thousand Names, I invoke your Grace. The Gods above adore You, the Gods below do homage to You: You set the orb of heaven spinning above the poles, You give light to the sun, You govern the universe. At Your voice, the spirits of earth rejoice, the elements obey. At Your nod the winds blow, clouds drop wholesome rain upon the earth, seeds quicken, buds swell. Birds that fly through the air, beasts that prowl on the mountain, serpents that lurk in the dust, all these tremble in single awe of You. Come to our temple, oh Goddess: dwell in our shrine: make our hearth Your altar: our hearts Your home."

~ Invocation to the Goddess Isis by Olivia Robertson from "Dedication of a Shrine to Isis" in "Dea, Rites and Mysteries of the Goddess"
