Gentle Hermes, most kind,
friend of man and woman,
guide to Orpheus and Eurydice
and protector of Persephone;
you come to each of us
as we begin our descent,
prithee come in comely form
to those who know Thee not.
May thy commanding staff
be a symbol of comfort
to those afraid to loose
these mortal bonds.
Hermes, Anubis,
I pray for my honored dead
but also the lost and the lonely,
for the wandering spirits
and all those who have noone to pray for them.
In your names, I pray for them.
Hermanubis,
may you be a constant and gentle guide
to all those whom you lead.
