Come, O come!...



1st – 2nd century A.DRoman





Come, O come!...
I am numb
With the lonely lust of devildom.
Thrust the sword through the galling fetter,
All-devourer, all-begetter;
Give me the sign of the Open Eye,
And the token erect of thorny thigh,
And the word of madness and mystery,
O Pan! Io Pan!Io Pan! Io Pan Pan! Pan!

from Magick in Theory and Practice, Hymn to Pan, Aleister Crowley
