The sky and the stars make music to You.
The sun and the moon praise You.
The Gods exalt You.
The Goddesses sing to You.
The Temple of Dendera, Ptolemaic Period
adapted from Miriam Lichtheim, Ancient Egyptian Literature, vol. III
Welcome in peace to the domain of Het-Hert (Hathor), the goddess who personifies Beauty, Love, and Motherhood. She is one of the most beloved deities of all of Kemet (Egypt), having been worshipped since at least the beginning of its recorded history, and her temples and shrines, some of which are still standing today, are among the loveliest in the world.
