Homage to You O Suty,
O Sutekh, O Setesh, O Set;
O Dread Lord for Whom the sky shakes,
Red-haired Lord of Terror
Whose countenance tears the sky,
And causes the vault to shudder.

O Lord of the Sky
Who approaches by thunder,
Who ejaculates by lightning,
Most terrible and beautiful of the Netjeru;
I praise Your terror and Your beauty,
For as the Son of Nuit
You are sublime of body
And glorious in Your deeds!

O Master of the Southland,
Wearer of the Diadem,
Keeper of the Cobra Goddess,
Upon Whose brow glitters
The inheritance of Shu;
Descendant of Geb Who claims
What is His by right;
May Your Shade go above me by day
And your Ba by night,
For I am one who has praised
Your name upon the earth,
Who has acclaimed the Son of Nuit
As the greatest of the Gods.

Homage to You
O Lord of the Red Land,
The One Who begets power
And sustains His subjects;
Your power is known within my essence,
And Your name is the arrow
Shot from the vessel of my heart.

– Homage to the Aegis of Sutekh Great of Strength by Ptahmassu Nofra-Uaa
