- Fumigation with Frankincense and Manna -
Oh veiled Tethys,
Goddess with Cerulean eyes flashing,
wandering through the deep,
Your gentle gales brush the earth,
Your blessed waves in swift succession
lash the rocky shore with windless flow.
I call You from the serene sea,
Oh Guardian of ships,
Mother of Aphrodite, Mother of Clouds,
Source of Streams, Guardian of Beasts,
Oh Venerable Goddess, hear my prayer and grant to us benevolent lives,
Send, Blessed Queen,
a prosperous wind to the ships,
and guide them safely over the wide and sundering seas.
