Prayer to the Lord of Delos and Delphi

Amanda Aremisia Forrester

Inspirer of works, leader of the Muses nine

The hunter Who for sweet Daphne pined

Lord of Delos, now I pray

Give me Thy words on this day


Glorious Apollo, blazing bright

Fill me with Thy luminous light

In all hours and for all seasons

Let me reflect Thy reason


Clear my mind of erroneous thought

Thou Who with great Python fought

He Who plays Thy golden lyre

Purify me in Thy sacred fire


Teach me the right, show me the way

Thou Who rewards the just and makes the wicked pay

Son of Zeus Who sits at Delphi

Deliver us Thy wisdom from on high
