about

A chant-song written for Ma’ahes, Egyptian lion-god of war. Half of this is based on His historical epithets and half on personal interpretations. The spoken piece is from an inscription from the Temple of Hethert in Philae.

lyrics

He Who Stands True Before Her
rise up, O God, rise up
show us now Your shining face
rise up, O God, rise up

Ma’ahes
The Living Lion
Ma’ahes
The Son of the Goddess
Ma’ahes
He of the Oasis
Ma’ahes
He of the Great Power

lion-headed warrior, bringer of justice
rise up, O God, rise up
guard us against all evil things
rise up, O God, rise up

Ma’ahes
The Great Protector
Ma’ahes
Whose Arms Are Strong
Ma’ahes
He of Great Respect
Ma’ahes
He of the Loud Roar

“I enter against them,
my hands holding the knife,
in this my name of the Raging Lion.”

Ma’ahes
Lord of Slaughter
Ma’ahes
He of the Grim Face
Ma’ahes
He Who Devours Hearts
Ma’ahes
He Who Is Pleased By Blood

Long Arm of Sunset, Twilight Walker
rise up, O God, rise up
keep us in Your blazing eyes
rise up, O God, rise up

Ma’ahes
Lord of the Sunlight
Ma’ahes
with skin like magma
Ma’ahes
fire-bright through water
Ma’ahes
Beloved Brother

Ma’ahes
the orange in the sky
the hot breath of the wind
the burning desert sands
the gleam along the blade
Ma’ahes!
