Prayer to Hermes for Protection Against Thieves

Closely have I read,
and often,
of how you stole Apollo's cattle,
and by clever stratagem sought to hide the deed
and avoid your guilt,
becoming thereby the god of thieves.
Trickster, I ask you to turn your trickery against those selfsame thieves,
and defeat the aims of those who would despoil this house.
Hermes, I praise your intelligence, which will ever find a way in,
and ask that it be just as effective in keeping burglars out.
