Athena, Hymns

Athena Hymn

For Athena’s Day today (as it is the 3rd of the month), here is a video to a beautiful hymn to Her sung at Bryn Mawr College during Lantern Night, where lanterns are lit and the sophmores give them to the freshmen.

People who honor Athena today could definitely use this in their personal practice. Light lanterns or candles for Her.

Hail Athene, Goddess of Wisdom, Knowledge and Strength.

English Translation

Pallas Athena, goddess of learning and strength,
We come to you to worship you, dread goddess.
Bless us we pray; give us wisdom.
Be with us always, Blessed goddess, hear!
Sanctify our lanterns now, to shine forever clearly,
Lighting the way, making bright the dark.

Greek

Pallas Athena thea,
Mathe mastos kai stenous
Se par he me is iman
Hie rus sou sai soi deine (x2)

Hie rus sou sai soi deine (x4)
Akoue. Akoue.

Makar i ze ai toumen
He min sophian didou
He min syngignou aei
Makarthe a akoue(x2)

Makarthe a akoue(x4) Akoue. Akoue.

Hie rize nyntous lydnous
Aei phanos phanoien
Lamprynontes ten hodan
Melan phanon poiuntes(x2)

Melan phanon poiuntes(x4)
Akoue. Akoue.

Nebet Het’s Procession

Today is day 3 of the Procession of Nebet Het (which lasts 6 days in total). On my calendar, it starts on November 1–because I’m lazy and math hurts my head–so for me 4th Akhet Day 1 is the first of November).

Anyway, I’m cleaning my home. I also offered Her chocolate milk and a blueberry muffin.

What are you doing today for this festival for the Lady of the House, Temple and Tomb?
