Fiercest hunter, Eye of Ra
Lady of slaughter, Lionheart
Balm for her heart were destruction and death
Deserts rose from a lethal dose of her steaming breath

She stalked the land with arrows of fire
From her bloodlust flood the red Nile
Growing hunger and thirst lies within
As Pharaohs ride with a might of hot desert winds

Fearless goddess the lionheart
Sekhmet, Eye of Ra
Ablazing in a midday sun and heat of Sahara
Hunger of the Lionheart
Fiercest daughter of Ra
The Nile is running blood-red
Soothe the wildness of the lion goddess

Cobras and sun disk on her crown
Colour of blood red was her gown
Lioness deity with a grin
Hunting for prey in the light of the day she turns on and kills

She slew the mortals who plotted against Ra
Murdered the people around Sahara
Bloodthirsty deity was tricked with a sight
To drink from the Nile, abandon the fight and save humankind

Fearless goddess the lionheart
Sekhmet, Eye of Ra
Ablazing in a midday sun and heat of Sahara
Hunger of the Lionheart
Fiercest Daughter of Ra
The Nile is running blood-red
Soothe the wildness of the lion goddess
