IV

Sole King is he, even in the midst of the gods;

Many are his names, none knoweth their number.

He riseth on the horizon of the east, he is laid to rest on the horizon of the west.

He overthroweth his enemies

In the daily task of every day;

In the morning he is born each day;

Thoth raiseth his eyes,

And propitiateth him with his benefits;

The gods rejoice in his beauties,

Exalting him who is in the midst of adorers!

Lord of the Sekti and of the Madet bark,

Which traverse for thee Nu in peace!

Thy crew rejoice

When they see the overthrow of the wicked one,

Whose members taste the knife;

The flame devoureth him;

His soul is more punished than his body;

That Nak serpent, he is deprived of movement.

The gods are in exultation,

The crew of Ra are in peace,

Heliopolis is in exultation,

The enemies of Tum are overthrown.

Karnak is in peace, Heliopolis is in exultation.

The heart of the uræus goddess is glad

The enemies of her lord are overthrown;

The gods of Kheraha are in acclamation,

The dwellers in the sanctuaries are in obeisance;

They behold him mighty in his power.

Mighty prince of the gods!

Great one of Justice,* lord of Karnak,

In this thy name, “Doer of Justice,”*

Lord of Plenty, Peaceful Bull;*

In this thy name, “Amen, Bull of his Mother,”

Making mankind,* creating* all that is,

In this thy name of “Tum* Khepera,”*

Great hawk, adorning the breast!

Fair of face adorning the bosom.

Figure lofty of diadem.

The two uræi fly on wings before him,

The hearts of men run up to him [like dogs],

The illuminated ones turn towards him.

Adorning the two lands by his coming forth,

Hail to thee, Amen Ra, lord of the throne of the two lands!

His city loveth his rising.
