O Zeus much-honored, Zeus supremely great, to U this holy rite I consecrate,
my prayers and expiations, king divine, for all things round thy head exalted shine.
The earth is yours, and mountains swelling high, the sea profound, and all within the sky.
Jovial king, descending from above, magnanimous, commanding, sceptered Zeus; All-parent, principle and end of all, whose power almighty, shakes this earthly ball;
Even Nature trembles at your mighty nod, loud-sounding, armed with lightening, thundering God.
Source of abundance, purifying king, O various-formed from whom all natures spring;
Propitious hear my prayer, give blameless health, with peace divine, and necessary wealth.
