Possible lines for Drawing down the Moon
I draw down the bright blue moon from the sky though brazen cymbals crash and thunder to keep her in her place; even the chariot of the sun, my grandfather, grows pale at my song, and I drain the color from the dawn for my potions. (From Ovid: Invocation of Hekate)

Hermetic Prayer of Thanksgiving (revised) Having come forth from the sanctuary, they began their prayers to God, looking to the south; for when a man wishes to pray to god at sunset, he ought to face south, just as at sunrise he ought to face east. . . "We thank thee, O thou whose name none can tell, but whom we honour by the appellation "God". Because your alone are master, and blessed by the appellation "creator", Because you have shown in acts toward all humanity and in all things, loving kindness and affection such as a parent feels and more you have bestowed on us mind, speech and knowledge, Mind that we may apprehend thee; Speech that we may call upon thee; And knowledge, that having come to know thee, and found salvation in the light thou givest, we may be filled with gladness. We are glad because though hast revealed thyself to us in all thy being; Glad because, while we are yet in the body, though hast made us gods by the gift of your own eternal life. We thank you by learning to know you. Brightly shining light of the world of mind; True life of the life of man. All prolific womb, made pregnant by the creator. Eternal constancy, unmoved, yet makes the universe revolve. We adore thee, who alone art good, and crave nothing save knowing, loving, and to continue in this blest way of life. "

Orphic Hymn to the Moon HEAR, Goddess queen, diffusing silver light, Bull-horn'd and wand'ring thro' the gloom of Night. With stars surrounded, and with circuit wide Night's torch extending, thro' the heav'ns you ride: Female and Male with borrow'd rays you shine, And now full-orb'd, now tending to decline. Mother of ages, fruit-producing Moon, Whose amber orb makes Night's reflected noon: Lover of horses, splendid, queen of Night, All-seeing pow'r bedeck'd with starry light. Lover of vigilance, the foe of strife, In peace rejoicing, and a prudent life: Fair lamp of Night, its ornament and friend, Who giv'st to Nature's works their destin'd end. Queen of the stars, all-wife Diana hail! Deck'd with a graceful robe and shining veil; Come, blessed Goddess, prudent, starry, bright, Come moony-lamp with chaste and splendid light, Shine on these sacred rites with prosp'rous rays, And pleas'd accept thy suppliant's mystic praise.
