IN THE HEAT

In the Heat

In the Heat

 

When you set they die;

You yourself are lifetime, one lives by you.

All eyes are on <your> beauty until you set.

All labor ceases when you rest in the west;

When you rise you stir [everyone] for the King,

Every leg is on the move since you founded the earth.

The Great Hymn to the Aten
