I remember reading this a while ago.
Enheduanna (Who was Inanna's priestess) was cool, you know she is the worlds first named authors? Even cooler if you ask me.
I found a site with Mesopotamian (or what was their language...?) hymns and text along with translations.
For example here is part of the "Inanna's descent to the nether world"
Here is the site-- it's a MUST for anyone wanting to use the native language for hymns and such. Here is SO much here-- hymns, letters, songs, prayers, history!1an gal-ta ki gal-ce3 jectug2-ga-ni na-an-/gub\
