The sun is a luminary whose egress
Is an opening of the sky
Which is found on the west
And in the east lies its ingress

The sun is rising through six openings
And there are six through with it sets.
The moon uses the same
And all the stars, they guide their way.

First there goes out the greatest light whose name is the sun.
It's round just like the roundness of the sky; filled with light.

The chariot in which it rises is driven by the blowing wind.
The great light sets in the west and returns by the Northeast.

In order to go to the east, it is guided so that it shall reach the eastern gate and shine in the black face of the sky.

    The sun's a luminary
    Whose egress is an opening of the sky
    Which is found in the west
    And in the east lies its ingress

    The sun is rising through six openings
    And there are six through with it sets
    The moon is using the same
    And all the stars, they guide their way

    First there goes out the greatest light
    Whose name is the sun
    It's round just like the roundness of the sky
    Filled with light

    The chariot in which it rises
    Is driven by the blowing wind
    The great light sets in the west
    And returns by the northeast

    In order to go to the east
    It is guided so that it shall reach
    The eastern gate and shine
    In the black face of the sky

    First there goes out the greatest light
    Whose name is the sun
    It's round just like the roundness of the sky
    Filled with light

    First there goes out the greatest light
    Whose name is the sun
    It's round just like the roundness of the sky

    First there goes out the greatest light
    Whose name is the sun
    It's round just like the roundness of the sky
    Filled with light
