Hymns of Adoration to Setekh
The following working was inspired by rites of devotion to Setekh, the lord of the red desert. Such manifestations are encountered throught the Tuat, one of the realms that are under his rule. His temple is guarded by a serpent race that is commanded through diverse incatations to let only the initiates of the Seithian mysteries enter. In the Tuat you can meet the serpent demon called “Sati-Temui,” who is in charge to help devour the souls of adepts who try to cross the temple in the Tuat. Before devouring the souls, they are burned in infernals vessels of fire in the Tuat. After that, the soul is seduced by Set in the form of a giant serpent which slowly devours its essence.
For this working you will need to place an image, statue, or any relevant items connected with the god. A glass of beer and Setekh incense: tobacco, red pepper, dragon’s blood, or copal will be used in the working well.

HYMN OF GLORIFICATION (Powers of Setekh) The sky turns red, the stars darken the sun The vaults are open, the earth trembles before his throne The red planet devours the souls of men At midnight sun Setekh rises to power The god who lies in his own darkness, Who feeds on the souls through the midnight sun The powerful master of a cunning craft Whose mother knows not his name; His glory is in hell His power is in the underworld Like a serpent dancing in the desert Through his voice, he is stronger than hell The forces of darkness are behind him His helpers are under his feet His crown on his head, his serpents on his brow A red serpent is on his brow Sutehk, devourer of souls, whose flame consumes thousands of universes and all light on the earth. Chants of putrefaction, power and agony To he who has rage and fury in his heart Who lives in every proclamation Who eats the entrails of his enemies for eternity Becoming the black flame that spreads his gnosis From the pillars of fire; Througth Amenti he has gathered his spirits, Set has risen as the Great One, master of masters, A mystic call for those who do not know his masks and secret names spoken in tongues of fire. The old kingdom rises in flames, Devouring the ancestral fire of time. Set, lord of the red desert, storms, and darkness Who himself prepares the black flame He who feeds on the gods of the nightside Master of messengers of the Serpent and the Dragon! I invoke his power, the one of the dragon at midnight! He is the raised head of the serpent who guards the entrance to the paths of darkness He is the ruler of pathways through thorns and storms He is the red god of the desert, slayer of lords, who cuts their throats for pleasure Who rips their entrails Bring of utter darkness, voice crawling chaos Give us the power of the ancient wisdom! Devourer of souls, king of the sulfurous path of Amenti! The snake is born, his spirit is in the vessel The scales of the dragon reveal his many names, Upon his brow - the Dead King's Crown God-Destroyer, God-Begetter He who was before the oldest males and females The Great Ones in the northern sky guard his fire The fire god of the Ancient Flame The urn burns his magnificent elixirs He has destroyed a thousand skies He has begotten the primogenial race of men With a great power that overpowers the strength of the mortals Wearing the divine mask, the great vast power burning from his eyes He finds his way to devour everything. Setekh's place is before time and space, all in one, one in all. Setekh's is the oldest of the old, Thousands serve him, hundreds are offered to him Among the living in the red desert and the sands of Amenti for all eternity! Ω Invocation: THE AWAKENING (The Black Sun in Amenti) Thag'ahz Sethos Thag'ahz Thag'ahz Sethos Thag'ahz Elixirs from a thousand chambers, Libations from red vessels, The snake of fire rising through desolate gardens of flesh and bones, pain and agony, The red path is opened, the sacred fruit eaten, The black sun consecrated through the fires of transformation! Thag'ahz Sethos Thag'ahz Thag'ahz Sethos Thag'ahz Transmuted liquid black fire, the path of brilliant darkness Tendrils of primal quintessence, the flesh of all desires, Towers burning in tongues of fire, Black Sun rising in perpetual darkness, in the Sea of Nothingness! Thag'ahz Sethos Thagirion Thag'ahz Thag'ahz Sethos Thagirion Thag'ahz Shadows emerge through black holes Veiled in madness and ecstasy Primal totems erupting with strange symbols And vibrating mantras of fire Under the stones of primogenial wisdom below the pillars of the Black Sun in Thagirion. Thag'ahz Sethos Thag'ahz Thag'ahz Sethos Thag'ahz
