Translation

1–3      Come my god, my lord: may I walk before the Anunnaki! May I pass along the road!

4–5      May I hold your hand in the presence of the great gods!

6–7      May I hear the verdict! May I grasp your feet!

8–11    Since I have abandoned the house of darkness, oh my god, you make me wander through a marsh of need and hardship.

12–15  You look for me in the land of hunger; you made water and pasture precious for me in the land of thirst.
