  Orphic Hymns

 to Aether
O you who have the highest state of Zeus
which is always unbeatable
and you are a part of the stars sun and moon
All-subduer and breathing fire
and you are the spark of live to all living things
Aether heavenly sight foremost element of the cosmos!
O splendid creation light-bearing and star-lit
I invoke you and pray that you might be calm and kind with us
to Aphrodite
O heavenly Aphrodite laughter-loving
sea-born goddess mother goddess 
loving the all-night feast respected
nocturnal who binds men with women 
intriguer mother of necessity 
because everything is out of you 
who binded with cosmos and write the 
destiny of the three kingdoms
you generate everything all that is in heaven
and in fruitful earth and in depths of the sea
noble and who sits together with Bacchos
you take your delight in feats
and prepares the weddings
O mother of love who takes joy in beds 
with persuasion and acts secretly, 
queen, joy-giver, visible and invisible
you who have your hair wind-up with lovely braids
you who descends from a noble father
nymph protector, scepter bearer of the gods
she wolf, you who gives descendants
you friend of men, much desired
you giver of life
