An excerpt from a hymn to Nanna

1-5. God who ...... among the gods, coming forth on high, perfecting the divine powers of heaven! Outstanding crown, radiance, ......, prince, ...... of heaven, justly cherished by An and Urac! Born in Dur-an-ki! Light, radiance and crown of Urim!

6-8. Now in addition he desired something good, something good. The lord wearied Enlil to determine the fate of his city: "My father, may you restore my city for me!"

9-11. No one should escape the grasp of Father Nanna, him of most just words! Princely lord, princely lord, great princeliness among the gods! In the temple that, like the heavens, inspires terror and fear, you are awesome.
