• 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.
