PBP Fridays: E is for the Earth Father

Geb (left) and Heru (Horus, right)Hail to You, Geb, Earth Father!
Black as fertile soil,
the world is Your body
and the green growing things which sustain us
are Your gifts to all life.

Hail to You, Geb, Earth Father!
Husband of the Sky,
You reach ever upwards to Her
with Your mountain peaks jutting
into Her lowest whorls of clouds.

Hail to You, Geb, Earth Father!
Goose-crowned Great Cackler,
You laughed creation alive
and strewed Your joy into every living creature
that moves within Your embrace.

Hail to You, Geb, Earth Father!
First king of mankind,
You passed to us Your sovereignty
and all the weight and power of authority
so that Your seeds might bloom in Your image.

Hail to You, Geb, Earth Father!
Source of all offerings,
Your bounty surpasses all wealth,
flowering with richness and growth
as You bless mortals and gods alike.

Hail to You, Geb, Earth Father!
