Song for Heru-wer
© 2011 Natalie Baan

O Heru-wer on high,
great master of the sky,
with vigilance Your gaze protects our nation.
An end to all our pain
and justice in Your name —
You lift our hearts and lead us toward salvation.

Speckled Falcon, You are pure.
Everywhere You are is pure.
Heru-wer, Your ka is pure.
Heru-wer, may we be pure,
pure in thought and word and deed,
open hands for all in need.
As long as the sky endures,
Heru-wer, may we be pure!

Notes: Written in October 2010. The first four lines of the second verse are adapted from the Rite of the House of Morning from Edfu.

    I’m a musician and really love the words to many of your songs. Do you have any of them set to music, and if not, would you like them to be?
