O Bast the Great, You come to guard the Two Lands!
Sekhmet the Great, You come to guard the Two Lands!
Djehuty calls You when the sun is rising.
With claw and flame, go forth to guard the Two Lands
in splendor!


Notes: Written in December 2011 for the festival of Djehuty Calls Bast and Sekhmet to Guard the Two Lands.

Sekhmet Healing Song

Sekhmet, bringing Your holy flame of strength,
make us well today.
Sekhmet, bringing Your holy flame of strength,
make us well today.

Sekhmet, beautiful lioness, heal us!
Restore us to life.
Sekhmet, beautiful lioness, heal us!
Restore us to life.

Sekhmet, untamed and powerful Goddess,
hold back Your arrows.
Sekhmet, untamed and powerful Goddess,
hold back Your arrows.

Sekhmet, blazing like Ra in the sun barque,
bless us that we may live!
Sekhmet, blazing like Ra in the sun barque,
You bless us that we may live!


Notes: Written in November 2010. Sekhmet’s “arrows” are Her emmisaries or demons, the spirits that we seek to placate and bind during the amulet-making workshop at the Wep Ronpet retreat each year.
