Child of Tefnut,
Shu has raised You up
on His arms,
on His arms.
Child of Tefnut,
may You raise us up
as stars in Your sky.

Cow of Heaven,
carrying Lord Ra
on Your back
above the world.
Cow of Heaven,
lift on high Lord Ra
to shine down for us.

O Mehet Weret,
Mother of the Gods,
Wife of Geb,
for Whom Geb yearns,
You rise above us,
Mother of the Gods,
so that we might live.

Child of Tefnut,
Secret of the Sky,
spread Your wings,
O spread Your wings!
Child of Tefnut,
gentle as the night,
enclose us in Your wings.

O Child of Tefnut,
when the sun has set,
enfold us in Your wings.
