Joy and exaltation to You O Divine Mother, Maker of the Flood!
You Great Goddess Auset, the Mother of the Divinities,
The Mother of humankind!
Huw! There is this Face of Greatness arising in the
Presence of the Flood, and in the darkness of Your Lord
Sokar You raise Yourself to the accompaniment of
Shouts and the dancing of beautiful limbs!
See how the Gods come before You in Your Shrine
On this evening of the Festival of Tears, this night
When You as the Lady of Splendor come forth from
The flooding waters as the Lady of Life, the Mother
Of Her Son Heru, Who tears open the waters on
This Day of the Ascent of Ra into the Vault of the
Homage is given to the Lady Auset, the Lady of Splendors
Who listens to Her Lord every day!
Now has Auset stretched out Her two hands and arms over this,
Causing Hapi the Flood to shine from His hidden place!
Praise to You, O Lady of the Holy Flood, Whose face has washed
Away the ill that clothed the World in despair.
You are the Lady of this hour, the Mother of the beings who
Fell from the tears of Atum, and You have opened up
The Channels of the Holy Father, causing Him to
Grow again, causing Him to be green again, causing
His seed-essence to come forth in the day as the
Sovereign of Abundance.
Now You are clad in joy in the Presences of the
Shrines of the North and South, Your milk issuing
The Seed of Geb, the arms of the Gods lifted
About You in praise.
For You are Their Lady, the Lady of Splendors,
And all fear, awe and joy have humankind in You
When at last You appear on the Lordly Horizon
Of Your best beloved!
