ὦ Ζεῦ, πατήρ τε καὶ σοφὸς κλῄζῃ θεός
Language: Greek (Ελληνικά)
ὦ Ζεῦ, πατήρ τε καὶ σοφὸς κλῄζῃ θεός,
βλέψον πρὸς ἡμᾶς καὶ μετάστησον κακῶν.
ἕλκουσι δ᾽ ἡμῖν πρὸς λέπας τὰς συμφορὰς
σπουδῇ σύναψαι: κἂν ἄκρᾳ θίγῃς χερί,
ἥξομεν ἵν᾽ ἐλθεῖν βουλόμεσθα τῆς τύχης.
ἅλις δὲ μόχθων οὓς ἐμοχθοῦμεν πάρος.
κέκλησθέ μοι, θεοί, πολλά χρήσθ᾽ ἐμοῦ κλύειν
καὶ λύπρ᾽: ὀφείλω δ᾽ οὐκ ἀεὶ πράσσειν κακῶς,
ὀρθῷ δὲ βῆναι ποδί: μίαν δέ μοι χάριν
δόντες τὸ λοιπὸν εὐτυχῆ με θήσετε.
