“Who then are you? Where did you come from?
I am one of you. The Gatherer of souls is the ferryman’s name. Everything belongs to me, all has been given to me. I entered as a falcon and left as a phoenix. Morning star, clear me a path so that I can Reach the good world of the West. I belong to Osiris’s lake and adore Osiris, master of life.”

From the Egyptian Book of the Dead Chapter 122
