Hymn to Osiris
O, Voco te Domine Osiris
Ave Rex Luna et Salve Banebded
Ave Neferu, Agios Un-Nefer
Veni, Veni, Aeternae Neter
Silentium Regis, et Pater de Caelo
Agios Ischyros Wenennefer
Osiris Rex Sekhet-Aaru Gloria
[Oh, I Call to Lord Osiris/ Hail to the King of the Moon and Hail to his Ba/ Hail Osiris, Numinous (is) Osiris/ Come, Come, Eternal Deity/ Silent King, and (Non-Literal) Father of the Sky/ Numinous and Mighty is Osiris/ Glory to King Osiris of the Afterlife]
Osiris is the judge of the dead and the king of the netherworld whose auspices were sought very frequently in Pharaonic Magick. He was once a living king of Egypt, and he was so renowned for his kindness and fairness that when his brother killed him, the god of the netherworld, Anubis, unrequestedly gave the chthonian throne to Osiris out of respect. Osiris rules the moon and the stars and he presides over magick, immortality, rebirth, agriculture, visualization, destiny, and prophecy/divination. He engenders transition, insight, regeneration, understanding, justice, renewal, and resurrection. Two advanced black magickians who didn’t know each other spoke very highly of him to me.

Hymn to Anubis
Aperiatur Duat et Sa-Ka– Voco te Khenty-imentiu
Salve Dei Necromantia– Agios Ischyros Anubis
Ostende Nobis, Khenty-sek-Netjer, Potentiam Tuam
Veni, Rex Duat, et Sepultura Patronus
Rege Anubis, Magne Pater, et Germinet Anados
[Open the Afterlife and the City of Dogs– I Call to Anubis/ Hail to the God of Necromancy– Numinous and Mighty is Anubis/ Show Us, Anubis, the Power of Your Hand/ Come, King of the Afterlife, and Patron of Funerals/ Reign, Anubis, Great Father, and Engender Magickal Empowerment]
Anubis is the guide, guardian, and protector of the dead who rules over embalming and funereal rites. Two advanced black magickians who didn’t know each other spoke very highly of him to me. He’s the patron of lost souls and orphans, and he was said to have been conceived in a barren womb. He is attributed to Sirius. He presides over anesthesiology, and his priests were herbal healers. He is loyal and fiercely protective, but he’s said to have a playful side as well.
Hymn to Chepri
Mirabilia Opera Tua– Agios es, Pater Chepri
Ave, Khepera, Aeternae Concinnator
Salve Magni Patris Kheper
Voco te Chepri, Pater Magnum Opus
Venire, Khepera– Rex Sole et Neter!
[Marvellous are thy Works– Numinous art thou, Father Chepri/ Hail, Chepri, Eternal Creator/ Hail Great Father Chepri/ I Call to Chepri, Father of the Great Work/ Come, Chepri– King of the Sun and Deity]
Khepri was a primordial and self-created deity of the rising sun who has come to prominence in black magick. While the Temple of Set’s adulation of Chepri reduces him to the metaphysical principle of self-transformation, Dragon Rouge has lauded Chepri as an excellent deity for black magickians. Hecate’s spirits have told me that Chepri is really all about evolution– he doesn’t discriminate about which religions you use to do it and he really is here to help. Khepri presides over manifestation, renewal, initiation, rebirth, change, transformation, and resurrection. Chepri appears to be a god of evolution who is willing to assist all those who are willing to work to ascend.
