that I have come to you my Lord the Lord of Ma'at
that I have brought myself here to behold your beauties
that I know you Ra and that I know your name
that I have seen you rise in the darkness
that I have seen you rise from beyond the darkness
and have seen you rise with the emissaries of Ra
and he who brings forth dawn upon night

The akhu (transfigured souls) leading
the hounds of Anubis, which here in the XII hour
take on a benign aspect.
