Invocation to Ptah

Lord of Stone
Lord of Brick
Lord of Tile
Lord of Wood
Planner and builder
Of homes for the living
And tombs for the dead,
You who built the firmament
And raised it high above
For whom all things are a project
To be constructed in glory
Aid me in building
This life of mine
Sturdy and strong
With skillful hands.

(All shout "Hail!", and come forth to take tools from the table and go off to work. Like the previous day, any singing or chanting should happen during work, which should be done in teams.)
