This day the light in harmony I see
My heart beckons a soulful plea
Hear I  the pulsing,  and known be my heart
From this embracing moment I shan't depart
In silent knowing,  faith's blessings be mine
In this presence is defined the markings of all time
Ceaseless and endless be this moment's splendor
When to harmony my will,  I lovingly surrender.

The harpist chants laudation of the Pharaoh before the god Shu,
symbolizing the space between Heaven and Earth, 
who wears an ostrich feather headdress and holds a scepter Was, 
symbolizing the power and domination, and the sign of life – The Key Ankh.

Tomb of Pharaoh Ramesses III, XX Dynasty, 1185-1070 BC, The Valley of the Kings, Western Thebes.
