Prayer for my Mother

with 6 comments

Listen to it sung here.

Bas-es ahmetek,
Iryet Ra, iryet Ra;
Bas-es senedjek,
Iryet Ra, iryet Ra;
Khuwi Muti iryet Ra,
Iryet Ra, iryet Ra;
Khu netyu meruwi, iryet Ra.


She devours your sorrow, Eye of Ra, Eye of Ra.
She devours your fear, Eye of Ra, Eye of Ra.
Protect me, Mother! Eye of Ra, Eye of Ra, Eye of Ra.
Protect the ones I love, Eye of Ra.

*Thanks to Rev. Tamara Siuda for the Egyptian and Senushemi for the translation.  Photo used from google.

  3. This song (English & Egyptian lyrics and music) was actually written by Merybast, a former priest of the House of Netjer, not Rev. Siuda or Senushemi.

    • Thank you for the info. The podcast didn´t say. Do you have a link to her work so that I can promote it?

      • No, she’s not maintaining a Kemetic web presence anymore that I’ve seen. AFAIK, the song has only been published in private materials circulated within the House, but it would still be best to name her as the author even if it’s not possible to link to a publication or website.
