Votive stela of Nefer-Menu (Hymn-Prayer to Ra), by In-Taier

Votive stela of Nefer-Menu (Hymn-Prayer to Ra)

My soul bows before Ra in adoration,
When He appears on the East of the Sky.
My soul will follow You,
After the Morning Barque and Evening Barque.
It will follow You with praises
For death of Atum and rebirth of Khepri.
I will touch the Wedjat-eyes with my hand,
To announce Ma’at by all my life,
Always glorifying the greatness
Of You, Ma’at, and the Light of your Evening Ship,
That performs its daily course in the Sky.
