Come with flute and come with pipe!
Am I not ripe?
I, who wait and writhe and wrestle
With air that hath no boughs to nestle
My body, weary of empty clasp,
Strong as a lion and sharp as an asp —
Come, O come!
I am numb
With the lonely lust of devildom.

Aleister Crowley, Hymn to Pan (in Book 4; see also Hino a Pã)

In Nomine Babalon, CXX

CXX

Thou who art female, Thou who art male,

Combining the elements within Thy grail

With Thy ruby eagle and ivory lion.

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

In Nomine Babalon, XXV

XXV

Exposing the old lies told by the priest,

She’s promulgating the Age of the Beast—

The great lion-serpent She’s riding upon!

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!

In Nomine Babalon, VIII

VIII

Oh lady who closes the mouth of the beast,

The might of the lion subdued by the least;

Overpowered by love and not coercion!

I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!
