ὦ Ζεῦ, πατήρ τε καὶ σοφὸς κλῄζῃ θεός

Language: Greek (Ελληνικά)

Μενελέως
 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.
