Invocation to the Nile
Language: English 
God of the fruitful stream,
Father of life divine,
Flowing afar and near,
Osiris, hear!

God of the living earth,
Giver of harvesttime,
King of the heaven clear,
Osiris, hear!

Flow o'er the thirsting land,
waken the bud to flower,
Ripen the golden ear,
Osiris, hear!
