Egyptian Hymn: Praise Be To You

Praise be to You, O God, the oldest Existence, the Support of all that is, the Maker of herbs and animals and us; indeed, Maker of all happenings within and above and below us; Deliverer of the suffering and oppressed; Source of joy; You whose name is hidden:

Praise be to You, Sleepless One; praise from the creatures of every land ,as well as from the height of heaven to the depth of the sea.

We extol You; we worship You.
