O nameless splendour of the Gods,
          Begotten hardly of Heaven!
Unspoken treasure of the abodes
          Beyond the lightning levin!
No misery, no despair may pay
The joy to hold thee for a day!

Aleister Crowley, The Argonauts

Hermetic quote Crowley The Argonauts nameless splendour gods heaven unspoken treasure abodes no misery despair pay joy hold thee a day

Egyptian Magic in Egyptian Magic by Florence Farr.

“Oh! thou who leapest forth! Conductor of the Shades and the glorified Ones from the earth! Let the fair path to the Western Abodes, which is made in behalf of those who faint, and for the restoration of those who are in pain, be granted unto me.” [via]

Egyptian Magic in Egyptian Magic by Florence Farr.

“Let thy ways be made wide for me to traverse the earth and the expanse of Heaven. Shine Thou upon me, O penetrating power, as I draw near to the Divine words my ears shall hear in the Abodes of the West. Let no pollution of that which brought me forth be upon me. Deliver me, protect me from him who closeth His Eyes at twilight and bringeth to an end in darkness. (The annihilator.)” [via]
