Welcome Sun God

      + Splendid you rise in heaven's lightland,

               O living Aten, creator of life!

            When you have dawned in eastern lightland,

               [[You fill every land with your beauty.

               You are beauteous, great, radiant,
                        High over every land;

                Your rays embrace the lands,

                   To the limit of all that you made.

               Being Re, you reach their limits,

            You bend them for the son whom you love;

            Though you are far, your rays are on earth,

          Though one sees you, your strides are unseen.
                              You wake me
                    peep through curtains of my room
                           with all splendour.
