Song for the Swift One
© 2009 Natalie Baan

Swift One running on the height,
swiftly drumming Eye of Ra,
Swift One dancing by moonlight,
come to us, O Eye of Ra!

By the keenness of Your sight,
may no danger befall us,
may no evil befall us.
May the keenness of Your ears
hear the music of our joy.

Wenut, come to us,
bringing prosperity.
Wenut, Eye of Ra,
guarding our families.
Hear us sing for You,
beautiful Wenut!
May it satisfy You,
Lady of Wenu!

Swift One running on the height,
swiftly drumming Eye of Ra,
Swift One dancing by moonlight,
come to us, O Eye of Ra!

By the keenness of Your sight,
may no danger befall us,
may no evil befall us.
May the keenness of Your ears
hear the music of our joy.

Swift One dancing by moonlight,
come to us, O Eye of Ra!


Notes: Written in October 2009. Wenut is the hare-headed Goddess of the fifteenth nome of Upper Egypt and one of the Seven Arrows of Bast.
