The translator feels almost certain that this Hymn is no hymn, but a mystery-ritual, and perhaps the earliest ritual in which there was any trace at the time that this edition was published. As in other Coptic Gnostic works of mystery-rituals, the Disciples are bidden to surround the Master at certain praise-givings and invocations of the Father.
The prayer itself is only five pages long, double-spaced. Following it there are several pages of comments.
