- Fumigation from Frankincense -
Hermes, draw near and to our prayers incline, Son of Maia,
Teacher of Science, Ruler of mortals, Subtle Minded God, Almighty Heart.
Celestial messenger, skilled in all the powerful arts,
With your winged sandals, You travel the roads of heaven,
Oh Friend of mankind and Prophet of Philosophy, Great Supporter of Life,
You rejoice in the lithe leaping of the gymnast and in weaving words of
Master of all languages, protector of thieves and merchants,
Whose hand holds the scepter of blameless peace,
Blessed, profitable God of clever speech, whose aid in words we find,
Who kindly grants all necessities,
Dire weapon of the tongue, whom all revere,
Be present, Hermes, assist our works, grant us eloquence and flawless
memories, and conclude our lives with peace.
