Litany to Gaia

This is from my old blog, the Geekie Hellenist. Enjoy.

This is the Litany to Gaia. I got this from the book ‘In Praise of Olympus: Prayers to the Greek Gods’ by Hearthstone. I hope that this helps and these are done on prayer beads.

Well-honored Gaia, whose name is praised in every land, whose voice is heard in dreams of prophecy, whose vengeance falls upon the murderer, who bears the weight of sorrow with serenity and strength, I praise and honor you, I thank you for your blessings.

Broad-bosomed Gaia, granter of the gift of life to all who dwell on the green earth.  Mother of many, of Titans and giants, all your children bound to you by love, O Gaia of the great heart. I praise and honor you, I thank you for your blessings.

Gaia, companion of the Karpoi, those spirits of fruit and grain who play at your feet, who dance on the rich dark soil, who turns up their faces in the warm soft rain, who take joy in the harvest. I praise and honor you, I thank you for your blessings.

Gaia on whom the oaths of men and women are sworn with solemn words and honest hearts, Gaia who sees all actions, who witnesses all vows, who rewards the upright and punishes the faithless. Gaia, I praise and honor you, I thank you for your blessings.

Blessed Gaia, who arose from formless Chaos, bringer of order whose being and body are held in common among all the far-flung realms, whose spirit lies in all whose lives you hold in hand, I praise and honor you, I thank you for your blessings.
