"I give praise to the Peak of the West,
Kissing the ground to her Ka.
I give praise; hear my invocation!
For I am a righteous person upon the earth.

I was an ignorant man and witless,
Not distinguishing good from bad.
I made the mistake of transgressing against the Peak,
So she chastised me with her hand.

Behold! I say, to the great and small . . .
Beware the Lady of the Peak!
For there is a lion within her.
The Peak strikes with the stroke of a savage lion.
She is after him who offends her.

I called out to my Mistress,
And found her coming to me as sweet as the breeze.
She forgave me after she had made me see her hand.
She turned round to me in mercy;
The Peak of the West is merciful when she is called upon.."
