Hymn to Hathor
December 6, 2015

The sky and its stars
make music to you.
The sun and the moon praise you.
The gods exalt you.
The goddesses sing to you.

(Hymn on a staircase wall at the
temple of Hathor at Dendera,
staircase leading to the roof.)
(Lise Manniche,
_Music and Musicians in Ancient Egypt_, pg. 12)
who got it from H. Junker, 'Poesie der Spatzeit'
