THE WORDS OF OPENING

Ash:  (Be ye far from Here all ye profane.
Ye Gates of the Hidden One be Open.
For I am Witness to the Dawn of my own Light.')

Spel:  Hail to the Star of Wisdom!

V.A.:  Hail to the Spells of the Imperishable Stars!


THE DECLARATION

Spel:  Hail to the Unknown Initiator of all Magick,
Eternal Goddess and Eternal God, revealed and worshipped by countless
names and rites of power, unto whom the whole earth hath given veneration.
Love and Honor is given unto Thee by the Spirit of the One Sorcerer,
the First and Last-born of Witch-Blood, the Living Totem of all Nature.
Hail! To All that are present at this Rite: the Living and the Dead of
all Bless'd and Wise
Hail! Order Without Name!

Ash:  Call Sethos, the opener of ways:
O' Sethos! Rise up and remember!
Recall the Promise once stain'd in red upon the primal dust of Earth!

By baying dog and moon-beam, by lantern, stave and upright stone
Come fathom the starlit heights of Heaven in the Old Dew-pool of Cain.
Come ring the blood round with the Serpent, Come turn the skin of time,

V.A.:  Come pace about the corpse of Abel, here break the Fate of Mortal Man!
Here cast forth the Visions from Yesterday, from Tomorrow, unto Today.
Here open the Way for the Crooked Path, for the Pathway forever to be!
O' Sethos! Rise up and remember,
'Til Thy Namesake, the Man of Light, is born!

The Working

(Everyone, please raise your athames or wands.)

Ash:  This is the Spell of the Athame
By the Rais'd Sickle of the Moon I reap the Blood of the Night,
Star-ridden and scarlet-stained, this is the Spell of the Holy Athame.
By Thee, the Letter of Blood, I mark the Paths of the Azoetic Sorcery.
By the Powers of Will, Desire and Belief,
At One with Thy Signs wrought in the ethers,
I mark the Ways of mine own Enchantment.

Cut ye the Fetters of the Flesh. 
Release the Hearts of the Profane in sacrifice.
Release the Hearts of the Wise in devotion.
Rend ye the Veils of Matter and the Boundaries of Form.
Make clear the Gates and the Pathways wherein the Spirit shall walk.

Spel:  Receive ye the Harvest of the Stars;
Draw down the Light of Sun and Moon.
Receive ye the Harvest of the Void;
draw down the Darkness and raise ye up the Abyss of the Night.

And in the Circle of the Earthly Sabbat all Powers bind.
To Cast, to Call, to Banish - such is the Will of the Holy Athame,
call'd the Knife of the Black Hilt.
By Thy Most Ancient Forms of Stone and Wood
the Rites of Earth exact;
the Earthly Sabbat's Circle cast -
the Word of Powers pronounce.
By Thy Form of Metal from the Stars fallen,
the Rites of the Stellar Powers exact: the Eternal Circle cast.
By Thy Forms of the Seven Earthly Metals forged,
the Seven Rays bind into One.
By the Dagger of Exorcism,
forged from the Reddened Bones of the Ancient One,
and in whom all Seven meet, the Infernal Sabbat's Rites exact;
its Circle of Shadow cast.
Such is the Spell of the Holy Athame.


The Binding with Elixer

V.A.:  That this working be bound to the mundane realm, we seal it
with the drinking of Holy elixir. (Please, take a sip and hold some back)
Thou shalt then perform the Act of the Sacrifice: -
Cast forth the Vessel unto the Great Watcher Within.
Cast it forth into the Vast Abyss of the Night-
Sky, even unto the Void that is beyond the Gate at the Circle's Heart.
Cast your elixir into the Holy Inferno at the center of our circle!

(Everyone throw your cup with the bit of elixir into the fire!)


Admonition

Ash:  Now cast your mind adrift and wait in silent meditation.
Only in Silence may the word be heard.  (wait a bit)
Remember that such Knowledge as Thou art able to receive must be used
to its full, if Thou art to advance yet further.
If Thou shouldst gain some Sigil or Word of Power, then must Thou use it
with due care, as it will afford much protection.
For None shall protect Thy Spirit in the Paths of Egress if Thou art
not diligent to employ the correct Signs of Power.


Circle Open

Spel:  Having lent your aid to hold open the Gates, Sethos we bid you
depart in Strength and Glory.
The Way is prepared:-
The Body of Flesh is cleansed and anointed.
The Mind is made pure by Holy Contemplation.
All Thought is reined unto the Strength of Will.
The Spirit is made Pure by the Enchantment of Witchblood
and is sanctified through Devotion.
Through the One-Pointedness of Will, Desire and Belief,
 the Whole Self is directed towards the Arcanum of I.
By the Rites of Ingress The Way is opened
and the Powers are called forth.
By the Rites of Congress The Summoner and the Summoned are made One.
By the Rites of Egress The Sorcerers go forth through the Gate
of the Open Way. -
We ask that the closing be as follows:

THE CIRCLE CHANT OF THE SABBAT AS USED IN THE CLOSING OF A RITE

V.A.:  (As you chant this, walk three times round the circle)
Circle of Azoth, Circle of Sethos, Great Sigil of the Round Dance!
Three Times round Thy Sign I trace, with stealth of heart
and stealth of pace, to bind all Power raised in this place.

Spel:  (As you chant this, walk three times round the circle)
Circle of Azoth, Circle of Sethos, Great Sigil of the Triune Void!
Horizon of all Sorcery, Heart and Womb of the Ancient Earth!
Bind Thou this Spell, and give it Birth!


Open the Circle

Ash:  Queen, Ancestress and Mother,
King, Consort and Lover.
Ye Twins of the One Spirit, ye Sister and Brother,
By Water, by Salt, and by Triple Flame,
The Circle be loosed and unbound in Thy Name. This rite is ended.
