To Zeus, a brief prayer for rain by Anonymous
Great Zeus, Son of Kronos,
Most High, Father of Gods and Men,
Protector of Strangers, Good Counselor
Hear my prayer, and bestow your blessings
Zeus Kataibates, Cloud Gatherer,
You descended upon Danae as a shower of golden rain.
Rain now upon your parched children, Ombrios,
Water more precious than gold.
Our dry lips praise you, Great Zeus,
In hope of this blessed moisture.
