March 19 (IV Peret 19) is the Festival of Ra in His Barque.

Hail to You, Ra, radiance of radiances,
sailing the blue waters of the sky
in Your magnificent barque.

Shine upon Your children
when the heavens are clear and bright
so that we may reflect Your glory in our eyes.

Shine upon the dead
when the heavens are dark and bestarred
so that they may reflect Your glory in their kau.

As You share Your light with us,
may we share our light with others,
for no sun or candle is diminished by kindling another.
