Hymn To Isis

August 12, 2010 § Leave a comment

for i am the first and the last

i am the venerated and the despised

i am the prostitute and the saint

i am the wife and the virgin

i am the mother and the daughter

i am the arms of my mother

i am barren and my children are many

i am the married woman and the spinster

i am the woman who gives birth and she who never procreated

i am the consolation for the pain of birth

i am the wife and the husband

and it was my man who created me

i am the mother of my father

i am the sister of my husband

and he is my rejected son

always respect me

for i am the shameful and the magnificent one

hymn to isis, third or fourth century b.c.,

discovered in nag hammadi
