high ground overlooks the ocean. Take up the tablet in thy right hand
and make of the sign of Kish with thy left. Recite the incantation
thrice and when the final word of the third utterance dieth in the air
cast thou the tablet into the waves saying:
'In His House at R'lyeh Dead Cthulhu waits dreaming,
yet He shall rise and His kingdom shall cover the Earth.'

the shall unlock the secrets of the deep.
O Thou that lieth dead but ever dreameth,

When death dies, Thy time shall be,
and Thou shalt sleep no more;
Grant me the power to still the waves,
that I may hear Thy Call.

rise and His kingdom shall cover the Earth.
