Sing of the Gods, the Deathless Ones who are forever.
Hestia both first and last
"Hestia, you who tend the holy house of the lord Apollo, the Far-shooter at goodly Pytho, with soft oil dripping ever from your locks, come now into this house, come, having one mind with Zeus the all-wise -- draw near, and withal bestow grace upon my song." Homeric Hymns - XXIV
Favor us, Hecate
We ask the blessing of ancient Hecate, faithful and awesome, daughter of the Titans Coeus and gold-crowned Phoebe. "Great honour comes full easily to him whose prayers the goddess receives favourably" Theogony - VII
Praise the Deathless Ones
Let us join our voices with the song of the Heliconian Muses, as they sing "...with lovely voice, praising Zeus the aegis-holder and queenly Hera of Argos who walks on golden sandals and the daughter of Zeus the aegis-holder bright-eyed Athena, and Phoebus Apollo, and Artemis who delights in arrows, and Poseidon who both holds and shakes the earth, and honored Themis and quick-glancing Aphrodite, and Hebe with the crown of gold, and fair Dione, Leto, Iapetus, and Cronos the crafty counsellor, Eos and great Helius and bright Selene, Earth too, and great Oceanus, and dark Night, and the holy race of all the other deathless ones that are for ever." Hesiod - Theogony
