This is from my old blog, the Geekie Hellenist

This is the prayer to Hypnos. Hope that you enjoy.

Gentle Hypnos, child of night dwelling Nyx, master of far-flung Erebos, far beyond the path of the sun, I honor you, I thank you for your blessings. Dark is your hall, O Hypnos, dark and deep; red are the poppies that grow at your gate.

Young and fair you are, O Hypnos, so beautiful in repose. Kind and good are you, O brother of death, O granter of rest to the weary, of respite to those whose need for your comfort is desperate and dire. Hypnos, fair-browed one whose gifts of sleep restores us to ourselves each day anew, I praise you.
