Hymn to Nut


O Nut, thou hast extended thyself over thy son the Osiris Pepi,
Thou hast snatched him out of the hand of Set; join him to thyself, Nut.
Thou comest, snatch thy son; behold, thou comest, form this great one like unto thyself.
O Nut, cast thyself upon thy son the Osiris Pepi.
O Nut, cast thyself upon thy son the Osiris Pepi.
Form thou him, O Great Fashioner; this great one is among thy children.
Form thou him, O Great Fashioner; this great one is among thy children.
Keb was to Nut. Thou didst become a spirit.
Thou wast a mighty goddess in the womb of thy mother Tefnut when thou wast not born.
Form thou Pepi with life and well-being; he shall not die.
Strong was thy heart, thou didst leap in the womb of thy mother in thy name of "Nut."
O perfect daughter, mighty one in thy mother, who art crowned like a king of the North,
Make this Pepi a spirit-soul in thee, let him not die.
O Great Lady, who didst come into being in the sky, who art mighty.
Who dost make happy, and dost fill every place, with thy beauty,
The whole earth is under thee, thou hast taken possession of it.
Thou hast encompassed the earth, everything is in thy two hands,
Grant thou that this Pepi may be in thee like an imperishable star.
Thou hast associated with Keb in thy name of "Pet".
Thou hast united the earth in every place.
O mistress over the earth, thou art above thy father Shu, thou hast the mastery over him.
He hath loved thee so much that he setteth himself under thee in everything.
Thou hast taken possession of every god for thyself with his boat.
Thou hast made them shine like lamps, assuredly they shall not cease from thee like the stars.
Let not this Pepi depart from thee in thy name of Hert.
