Zep Tepi Song for Nefertem

Nefertem, beauty at morning,
pure as the blue waters that raise You
into the world of a new day.
Shine for me, shine for me, hey yeah —

Noble God, crowned with the lotus,
sweetness pours from you like the flood,
rising, rising til it meets the sky.
Lift my heart like Ra on the ben-ben!

Zep Tepi, Zep Tepi,
Khepera, You dazzle me like the sun.
Nefertem, You set me free,
kissed by joy to welcome the new day!

Ihy sings, shaking His sistrum.
Heru takes flight from the nest of Heaven.
Wepwawet opens the gates of dawn.
All is new, all is becoming, yeah —

Zep Tepi, Zep Tepi,
spread my flame-bright wings like the bennu,
flowering in ecstasy,
kissed by joy to welcome the new day!

Nefertem, You show us wonders.
Nefertem, You give us a place to stand
close to God, cradled in Your embrace,
Your light and breath of perfume so that we live in

Zep Tepi, Zep Tepi,
Khepera, You dazzle me like the sun.
Nefertem, You set me free,
kissed by joy to welcome the new day!

Zep Tepi, Zep Tepi,
spread my flame-bright wings like the bennu,
flowering in ecstasy,
kissed by joy to welcome the new day!

Zep Tepi, Zep Tepi!
Zep Tepi, Zep Tepi!
Your perfect love is all I need!
Shine for me, shine for me, hey yeah!
