I ask Hecate, the Crone, to take Her throne.
Sleep, sister, sleep. Be not alarmed,
For the Great Goddess keeps you from harm.

I ask Hecate, the Crone, to take Her throne.
Sleep, brother sleep. Be not alarmed,
For the Great Goddess Holds you in her arms.

Quiet is the night, Dark is the Moon.
We honor Hecate the Crone, Who has taken Her throne.
Hecate, Crone Goddess, Keep me whole.
Let thy wisdom fill my soul.”
