A Prayer of the Pythagoreans for the Tetractys

"Bless us, divine number, thou who generated gods and men! 
O holy, holy Tetractys, 
Thou that containest the root and source of the eternally flowing creation! 
For the divine number begins with the profound, pure unity 
Until it comes to the holy four; 
Then, it begets the mother of all, 
The all-comprising, 
All bounding, 
The first born, 
The never-swerving, 
The never-tiring holy ten, 
The keyholder of all."
