If Lauds are celebrated immediately after Matins, the Primal Ceremonial, the Prayer Before the Office and the Prime Opening Prayers can be omitted. The office can either start directly from the Hymn or with the following:
Prayer Before the Office
We join our hands at the heart level and hallow All the Gods. For the joining of our hands is the sign, and their high and low expansion marks the opening of the Sacred Cone.
O Gods, open our lips to bless Your holy names; cleanse our heart from all separate, illusory and dualistic thoughts, and take far from us all the horrible illusions of the Graha Ilibisi. Enlighted our perception, kindle our affections, that we may be able to meetly say these Offices with attention, reverence, and devotion, and may worthily deserve to be heard before the presence of Your Divine Majesty. Through Handor, Rodnah and Pahai, or whatever other style you wish to be addressed. Amen.
For bishops: Oh Gods, look with love upon your people. In your power and ecstasy bless our episcopal offices. Guide the rectors and ministers you have chosen. Give them the grace of your presence so that they may bring us to you in the footsteps of Handor, Rodnah and Pahai. So may your Provisional Order be built up and your names glorified.
Sign of the Sacred Cone: Joining thumb, index and middle finger, touch first the forehead (Handor), then the solar plexus (Rodnah) and the heart (Pahai), then the left (All) and right shoulder (the Gods).
In the name of Handor, and of Rodnah, and of Pahai, and of All the Gods, and whatever other style you wish to be addressed. Amen. (In nomine Handoris et Sirodnah et Pahai et Omnes Deos et uel quo alio nomine te appellari uolieris. Amen.)
Opening Prayer: Incline unto our aid, O Gods! O Gods make haste to help us. Glory be to Handor, and to Rodnah, and to Pahai, and to All the Gods, and to whatever other style they wish to be addressed. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. (Kahesha Opa!) Lux in adiutorium meum intende; Domini/ae (Domine et Domina | Domini/ae), ad adjuvandum me festina. Gloria Handori et Irodnah et Pahai et et uel quo alio nomine te appellari uolieris. Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen).
Pahai Attha! Pahai Idriahe! Pahai Pahai Pahai!

Hail Bright Rodnah of quicksilver delight, shine upon me. Thy morning blessing, which, like the new dawn, refreshes my calling and lifts my heart with song. Blessed be.
Through the wide world thy beings raise Their prayers, and still we see Calm are the nights and bright the days Of those who trust in thee. Around thy starry crown are wreathed So many names divine: Which is the dearest to our heart, And the most worthy thine? Indeed all names divine are most worthy thine!
Vuolly! Star of the Sea: we kneel and pray When tempests raise their voice; Star of the Sea! the haven reached, We call thee and rejoice.
Kirway! Help of the Pioneers: in our need Thy mighty aid we claim; If we are faint and weary, then We trust in that dear name.
Hartem! Bright Queen of Light: What name can be so sweet As what we call thee when we place Our chaplets at thy feet.
Friaan! Bright Queen of Darkness: when we are sad Best solace of our pains; It tells us though on earth we toil, Our Mother lives and reigns.
Hanmar! Mystic Rose, Thy pure band. The roses round Thy throne Sometimes thy name is known; It tells us of the badge we wear, To live or die thine own.
Trent! We see our faith oppressed, And praying for our erring land, We love that name the best.
Kallex! Refuge of Gnostics: many a soul, By guilt cast down, and sin, Has learned through this dear name of thine, Pardon and peace to win.
Framg! Health of the Sick: when anxious hearts Watch by the sufferer’s bed, On this sweet name of thine they lean, Consoled and comforted.
Haxar! Mother of Sorrows: many a heart Half-broken by despair, Has laid its burthen by the cross, And found a mother there.
Tudor! Queen of all Saints: the Church appeals For her loved dead to thee; She knows they wait in patient pain, A bright eternity.
Ucar! Fair Queen of the Primal Embrace: thy pure band, The lilies round thy throne, Love the dear title which they bear Most that it is thine own.
Santjul! True Queen of Release: if we shrink From want, or pain, or woe, We think of the sharp sword that pierced Thy heart, and call thee so.
Handor: the dearest name of all, The holiest and the best; The first low word that he lisped Laid on His mother’s breast.
Rodnah, the name that Angels spoke, The name that conquers hell; Rodnah, the name that through high heaven,
The angels love so well.
Pahai—our comfort and our hope, Oh may that word be given To be the last we sigh on earth— The first we breathe in heaven.
Sundays 1. Transcendent Gods in whom we live, We sing for You a morning hymn | Light and Darkness united are | To end the silence of the night. When early cock begins to crow | And everything from sleep awakes, New life and hope spring up again | While out of darkness colour breaks. Gods of all things that are, The measure and the end of all, Ecstatic Gods, release our fears, And hear our prayer before we call | Praise Handor, Rodnah and Pahai, Blest Trinity | and source of grace,Who call us out of nothingness To find in You our resting place.
- I bind unto myself today | The strong name of the Trinity, By invocation of the same, Handor, Rodnah and Pahai | I bind unto myself today | The power of the Gods to hold and lead, Their eye to watch, their might to stay, Their ear to hearken to my need, The Sophia of the Gods to teach, Their hand to guide, their shield to ward; The word of the Gods to give me speech, Their heavenly host to be my guard. I bind unto myself the name | The strong name of the Trinity; By invocation of the same. Handor, Rodnah and Pahai.
Mondays: The day is filled with splendour | As the Gods bring light from light, And all renewed creation | Rejoices in their sight. The Gods give their children | The wonder of the realms | In which their power and glory | Like banners are unfurled. || With every living being | Awaking with the day, We turn to All the Gods, Lift up our hearts and pray: O Handor, Rodnah, and Pahai, Your grace and mercy send, That we may live to praise you | Today and to the end.
Tuesdays: O Pahai, the Light of heaven | And of the worlds true Light, You come in all your radiance | To cleave the web of night | May what is false within us | Before your truth give way, That we may live untroubled, With quiet hearts this day. May steadfast faith sustain us, And hope made firm in you; The love that we have wasted, O Gods of love renew. Blest Trinity we praise you | In whom our quest will cease; Keep us with you forever | In happiness and peace.
Wednesday: O Gods, your light which dims the stars | Awakes all things, And all that springs to life in you | Your glory sings. Your peaceful presence, giving strength. Is everywehere, And fallen men may rise again | On wings of prayer. We praise you, Handor, Rodnah and Pahai blest, In whom the true creation lives and moves, And find its rest.
Thursdays: Handor and Rodnah’s glory, through Pahai, With love and mercy comes to span | The vast abyss of separation between | The Gods and humankind. || Gods yesterday and Gods today, For all eternity and in all universes the same, The image of our hidden Gods; Eternal in their names. They keep their word from age to age, They are with us to the end of days, A cloud by day, a flame by nights, To go before us on their ways. We bless you, Handor, fount of light, And Rodnah, your well-beloved spouse, Who with Pahai dwell in us: Immortal Trinity in One.
Fridays: We bless you, Handor, Rodnah, and Pahai | To whom all living beings tend, The source of holiness and grace, Our first beginning and our end. Come Pahai, searching fire, Whose flame all evil burns away. Come down to us with light and love, In silence and in peace to stay. We praise you, Trinity in One, Sublime in majesty and might, Who reign forever and wherever, In splendour and unending light.
Saturdays: It were my soul’s desire | To see the face of the Gods; It were my soul’s desire | To rest in their abode. Grant Handor, my soul’s desire | Deep waves of cleansing sights, Grant, Handor, my soul’s desire, From earthly cares to rise. It were my soul’s desire | To imitate my King, It were my soul’s desire | Their endless praise to sing. It were my soul’s desire | When heaven’s gate is won, To find my soul’s desire, Clear shining like the sun. This still my soul’s desire, Whatever life afford, To gain my soul’s desire | And see your faces, O Gods.
