Hear us, holy Goddess, Night-shining and queenly, 

Light-bringer, Radiant One, splendid Selene: 

Cow-horned moon, racing through the night, 

Nocturnal, torch-bearing, maiden of light, 

Waxing, waning, male and female combined, 

Luminous silver-rayed Mother of Time, 

Whose warm glowing orb illumines the Night, 

All-seeing, vigilant, beautiful, bright, 

Mother of ages, fruit-bearing Moon, 

Whose warm glowing orb reflects the light of high noon 

The rich quiet black is your eternal delight, 

You grant favor and and luck, shining jewel of the night, 

Marshal of stars, purple cloaked, silver veiled, 

Queen of the Night, Aktiophis, we hail! 

Shine on our rites with your all-blessing rays, 

O maiden, accept your initiates’ praise.
