Goddess of Warfare, Goddess of Protection
Ferocious mother against injustice
I apply your shield against isfet
Dua Bast! I pray to you!
Mistress of Boubastis, Mistress of Felines
United in heart I venerate you
Beyond the borders of the two lands, your devotee calls to you
Dua Bast! I adore you!
Lady of Dance, Lady of joy
I move to your heartbeat, the rhythm of the universe
In ecstatic sway to your celestial music
Dua Bast! I dance for you!
Madam of the Rattle, Madam of the Basket
I make processions with sacred sounds in your favour
And the utterances of your name touches my soul
Dua Bast – I shake the sistra for you!
Lady of The Flame, Lady of the House
I raise and weave my voice in supplication
I croon in your light of everlasting sun and moon
Dua Bast – I sing for you!
Defender of the Pharoah, Defender of the People
May you slay those who utter atrocities in your name
Your servant waits your intervention
Dua Bast – I call to you!
Eye of Ra, Slayer of Apep
I surround myself with your love and banish feelings of detestation
Beloved, in your name will I always make pure offerings of oblation
Dua Bast! I make this sacrifice for you!
Keeper of the Aegis, Keeper of the Ointment Jar
Impeccable beauty and grace is your boon
Your imperfect perfection raises my vibration
Dua Bast! I make this commitment to you!
Great of Magick, Great of Might
I pour libations in your name and engage in your sacred ceremonies
May you always be by my side as I am your loyal attendee
Dua Bast! I make this vow to you!
