Morning Hymn to Sobek and Heru-sa-Aset

Morning Hymn to Sobek and Heru-sa-Aset
by Sobekemiti, 28/7/2011

Greetings to You, Sobek from Crocodopolis,
Ra, Heru-sa-Aset, powerful God.
Greetings to You, Sobek from Crocodopolis,
Greetings to You who comes from the original waters,
Great ancient being, first of His kind,
Great Cosmic Creator!
Greetings to You, Elder of the Celestial Twins,
Sobek and Heru-sa-Aset, magnificent twin stars of Egypt,
Shining brightly in the sky, shining down with ancient light.
Greetings to You, Heru-sa-Aset,
The soaring falcon, the bright, hot sun.
Greetings to You, Heru-sa-Aset,
beloved of Aset, twin/son of Sobek,
the first Sun that ever was.
Greetings to You, Heru-sa-Aset,
Powerful God, King of Kings, Master of all Egypt.
Bull of the Bulls, Great Male Being,
Master of the floating islands
Greetings to You, Heru-sa-Aset
Avenger of Your Father, Protector of your Mother,
Greetings to You, Sobek and Heru-sa-Aset,
May You rise and greet the day.

This was modified and extended from a morning greeting to Sobek I found ages ago in a book I neglected to write down the name of. That Sobek often shared some of Heru-sa’s epithets made this sort of hymn more powerful for me, I think. The two being entwined together and such.
