A Summer Solstice Hymn

A Summer Solstice Hymn

Your servant calls out to the Great Falcon!
Bring us Your radiance, Lord!
The longest day of the year is upon us!
Bring us Your radiance, Lord!

Your servant calls out to the Heru who is in Shedet!
Emerge from Your temple oasis to greet us
Solstice is upon us, midsummer is here,
Come from Your temple to feed us!

Your servant calls out to the Lord of the Skies!
Lord, shine down Your light upon the land!
The air grows warm, and the harvest beckons,
Brought to maturation by your gifts.

Your servant calls out to the Bright Soaring Falcon,
Shining One, who illuminates the Two Lands with His glory.
The long summer days are here, Your power is supreme,
Your ascent to the throne tells of Your story.

Your servant calls out to the Triumphant King!
Bring us Your fire, Lord!
You who has avenged His father,
Bring us Your wisdom, Lord!

Your servant calls out to the One who Soars Above!
Heru, Bright Bird, whose sharp eyes see all,
As smmer returns, may Your breath cool us,
Shelter us, Lord, and embrace us!

Your servant calls out to the Avenging One!
Heru, striding, takes the throne, rightfully His.
The Wheel turns, You have come into Your power,
The Two Lands rejoice at Your crowning!

Your child calls out to the Lords of Shedety!
Sobek, Heru, twin Lords of the Two Lands,
At Solstice, this day, long, hot, and endless,
Bring Your radiance, Lord, Your starfire, Your peace.
