Praise Goddess , most awesome
of the Goddesses,
Let one revere the mistress of the
people, the greatest of the Gods.
Praise Uleria, the most awesome of
the Goddesses,
Let one revere the Queen of Women,
the greatest of the Gods.

She is clothed with pleasure and
love.
She is laden with vitality, charm
and voluptuousness.

In lips she is sweet; life is in
her mouth.
At her appearance rejoicing
becomes full.
She is glorious; veils are thrown
over her head.
Her figure is beautiful; her eyes
are brilliant.1 First Dynasty Babylon text, circa 1600 BCE to Ishtar

Thank you for your gifts o Great Goddess,
cease not to change, withhold not thy blessing
keep and protect those you arrows have struck
hear their praises even when they are mixed with tears.
