Song for Renenutet
© 2011 Natalie Baan

Renenutet,
lady of the fertile field,
nourish my heart,
feed my souls and body!

Renenutet,
mistress of the sacred flame,
tongue of Ma’at,
You who know my secret name!

May all that I touch be golden as the golden grain.
May all that I touch be golden as Your gaze.
May all that I love be sheltered by the hand of fate.
May all that I love be safe in Your embrace!

Renenutet,
great protector of the king,
generous with
all the blessings that You bring!

Renenutet,
to every home and garden,
come and be glad!
Renenutet, welcome in!

May all that I touch be golden as the golden grain.
May all that I touch be golden as Your gaze.
May all that I love be sheltered by the hand of fate.
May all that I love be safe in Your embrace!

Renenutet,
Renenutet,
Renenutet,
Lady of the fertile field!
