Wep Ronpet, Wep Ronpet
opening the year
Wep Ronpet, Wep Ronpet
dance and sing and cheer
Wep Ronpet, Wep Ronpet
day of Zep Tepi
time of renewal and
possibility

Wep Ronpet, Wep Ronpet
kiss the face of Ra
Wep Ronpet, Wep Ronpet
with great love and awe
Wep Ronpet, Wep Ronpet
honor every God
carried in procession
nourished by ma’at

Wep Ronpet, Wep Ronpet
beautiful as Tem
Wep Ronpet, Wep Ronpet
beginning and end
Wep Ronpet, Wep Ronpet
let the sistra ring
O Netjer, be content
with our offering

O Netjer, bless us all
our nation and king


Notes: Written in July 2011. Wep Ronpet is the Kemetic New Year. (If you aren’t Kemetic Orthodox, feel free to replace the last couplet with a repetition of the previous two lines.)
