Written in honour of Sobek on His birthday, July 10th/II Peret 10, 2013. Belatedly posted because I thought I’d already posted it here.
A Birthday Hymn For Sobek
Your child Sobekemiti calls out to the Lord of the Nile!
Bring us Your radiance, Lord!
Your child calls out to the first mound, Ptahtenen!
Be still and stable below our feet, enduring forever.
Your child calls out to the Lord of Bakhu!
Emerge from Your carnelian temple, great one, to greet me!
Your child calls out to the Son of Nit!
Rager, Great One, be at peace with me.
Your child calls out to the fertile one, to the one who makes the herbage green!
Rise, Great One, from the waters!
Bring Your black silt to the Nile!
Your child calls out to the Evening Star!
Bright in His Heaven, shine Your Starfire down upon us!
Your child calls out to Your Mother and Father, the Great He-She!
Honour to You, Nit, Creatrix, who brought forth the great crocodile Sobek!
The fruit of Your womb is forever fertile!
Your child calls out to the Lords of Kom Ombo!
Sobek and Heru, the Two Horizons, all praise be to You Shining Ones!
Dua Sobek! Dua Nit! Dua Heru! Nekhtet!
