Prayer to Mithras

Mithras Soter,
Mithras Pater,
Mithras of the Ever-Descending Knife:
Through your obedience to Sol Invictus
you rose to be with him,
to grasp hands with him,
to feast with him.
May I be as obedient to you.
May you alone be my crown.
May I come to sit beside you in the never-ending feast,
there among the stars.
Through Mercury, may I rise.
Through Venus, may I rise.
Through Mars, may I rise.
Through Jupiter, may I rise.
Through the Moon, may I rise.
Through the Sun, may I rise.
Through Saturn may I rise.
Through the agency of the salvific bull-slaying,
May I rise,
May I be made immortal.
