كفاك نوحًا على ما مضى
‏مضى كأنه لم يك سوى
‏حلمٌ حلمناه و لم نحيى

‏كفاك نوحًا على ما مضى
‏فهقد حكمت منوت على
‏أن حلمنا نحبه قد قضى

Enough weeping over what has passed
It went like it was nothing but
A dream we dreamt and did not live

Enough weeping for over what has past
So Manat has ruled that
Our dream has passed on

يا نوت،
أيتها السماء و الأم،
هبينا الهدوء،
هبينا الصمت،
و نحن ننتقل إلى ليلك.

O Nut,
Firmament and mother,
Let us be calm,
Let us be quiet,
As we move into your night.

This morning a bluebird was chirping outside my window
I stepped out but there was no one around
Only a faint memory of a moment we once shared
Now if I can only know what it meant

Worshiping a goddess with the body of a women well endowed
Do I need your permission to kiss your cheek
If you could read my mind then why must I speak?
Oh Asherah!

What was your name?
You of the morning and evening star
O’ Ishtar
O’ Attar
O’ Ashtar
O’ Astarte
By what name have you been called
Right here where I stand?
O’ Athtarsamē
Athtar of Heaven
Teach me your name
O’ Allat of Qedar

Ishtar O’ Ishtar
From the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates
To the Sierras of Iberia
Worshipped by all near and far

Ishtar O’ Ishtar
Wielding your shield and spear
Goddess of war and sex
You wept when Enlil flooded humanity

Open your wings
Have mercy on us, O' Uzza
Give us from your pride
And do not make us grieve

Goddess of love and war
In both you're just even if we're defeated
Grant us your gifts
With them we persevere and live

Our beloved Aluzza
Of eternal smile
Grant us pride and glory
And eternal love

معبودتي عشتار
‏معشوقتي عشتار
‏إلهة الحب و الجمال و الجنس و الحرب
‏من فرات لفرات
‏إلهة كل ما يملؤ الوجود جود
‏قديمة قبل كل ما كان
‏شابة بكر في كل آن
‏أبدية سرمدية بعد كل فان
‏واهبة الحياة و الحرية
‏نتغنى بحبك الغامر
‏كأنه تدفق دجلة و الفرات
