The Magician, his breast bare, stands before an altar on which are his Burin, Bell, Thurible, and two of the Cakes of Light. In the Sign of the Enterer he reaches West across the Altar, and cries:
Hail Ra, that goest in thy bark
He gives the sign of Silence, and takes the Bell, and Fire, in his hands.
East of the Altar see me stand
He strikes Eleven times upon the Bell 3 3 3—5 5 5 5 5—3 3 3 and places the Fire in the Thurible.
I strike the Bell: I light the flame:
He strikes Eleven times upon the Bell.
Now I begin to pray: Thou Child,
He puts the first Cake on the Fire of the Thurible.
I burn the Incense-cake, proclaim
He makes them as in Liber Legis, and strikes again Eleven times upon the Bell. With the Burin he then makes upon his breast the proper sign.
Behold this bleeding breast of mine
He puts the second Cake to the wound.
I stanch the blood; the wafer soaks
He eats the second Cake.
This Bread I eat. This Oath I swear
He strikes Eleven times upon the Bell, and cries ABRAHADABRA.
I entered in with woe; with mirth
He goeth forth.
