Journal of the Western Mystery Tradition
No. 3, Vol 1. Autumnal Equinox 2002

In the Autumnal Equinox 2001 issue of the Journal of the Western Mystery Tradition we published a poem entitled "Invocation of Set". We later learned that this poem, which we were informed was a translated from ancient Egyptian was actually the work of the magician Gregory Peters. We now present to you the original version of this poem, with proper credits going to Mr. Peters.

Homage to Thee, Prince of Eternity!
Homage to Thee, Prince of Light and Darkness!
Let my soul not be shut in, let my shadow not be fettered;
Let the Way be Open for my soul and for my shadow,
may it see the Great God --
May I look upon my soul and my shadow,
the Divine Heart of the Everlasting Fire of Set!
Within night and darkness, I have come to thee --
I am glorious, I am pure.
May I follow my heart at it's season of Fire and Night.
My soul is God, my soul is Eternity.
I am the Son of Set, Son of Fire!
I am the Heart of Eternal Set!
I am the Everlasting Fire of Set,
Child of the Radiant Darkness!
