The Passion of Ast and Nebt-Het

This rite is inspired by the Coffin Texts, Spell 74. There are two celebrants, each taking on the role of Ast or Nebt-Het.


Together:

Come! Live! Arise!
Hak-iri Asar! Hak-iri Asar!

This helpless one, asleep
This helpesss one, silent
We alone know how to find you
We alone know how to wake you

Come, lay us on his bones
Come, let us lift his head
Come, lay us in his arms
Come, let us wake him.

For Asar, the seasons turn
For Asar, the moist kisses

Ast:

I am Ast.

Nebt-Het:

I am Nebt-Het.
Heru will avenge you, Djhewty will protect you.
The earth will see, the gods will hear.
Give your rule over to your son, as we give ourselves over to you,
And let us tend to your weary bones.
I am Nebt-Het.

Ast:

I am Ast.
Pour into us, bring on your flood!
Your enemies are on their faces, as we are on our backs.
Fill the world with your gifts, as you fill the banks of eager rivers,
And let us tend to your weary bones.
I am Ast.

Nebt-Het:

I am Nebt-Het.
Your son obeys you, as you obey your father.
You obey your heart, and your body obeys your will.
Spread the gift of eternal life, as seeds are spread over fertile fields,
And let us tend to your weary bones.
I am Nebt-Het.

Ast:

I am Ast.

Together:

Come! Live! Arise!
Hak-iri Asar! Hak-iri Asar!

Ast:

I am Ast.
You are beautiful as you descend, even as the sun
At the gates of the mysteries of the shining ones.
You pour forth the light of our yesterdays, even as you pour your love into us,
And let us tend to your weary bones.
I am Ast.

Nebt-Het:

I am Nebt-Het.
The trembling of your flesh is at end,
The troubles laid to rest as the veil of night is parted.
The Ways are opened once more, the banks of the rivers are swollen,
And the world dreams of your eternal slumber, even as you dream of us.
I am Nebt-Het.

Ast:

I am Ast.

Together:

Come! Live! Arise!
Hak-iri Asar! Hak-iri Asar!
