The paper considers a hymn invoking Amun-Re of Karnak and Hibis to awaken, along with a parallel preserved in the edifice of Taharqa at Karnak. A translation and commentary are followed by an analysis of the structure of the ten individual invocation lines and of the structure of the ten lines as a whole; of the relationship between this hymn and its accompanying hymnic material; of the relationship between these texts and the remaining hymnic material in the room where it is attested; of the location of the hymn in the temple of Hibis; and of the location of its parallel at Karnak, along with a reassessment of the ritual purpose of the underground rooms there.
