Zeus, mightiest of those who walk Olympus’ halls,
none can long deny your will, you who rules the gods
themselves. You send the storms, the sharp claps of thunder,
the bright bolts of lightning that strike at your command.
Great Zeus, who we call on as defender, who we
pray to for victory, whose honors are the highest;
Zeus of many festivals; Zeus of many names;
kindly Zeus, Zeus the provider, guardian of guests,
protector of children; Zeus the all-powerful,
mate to stately Hera, father of gods and men;
Zeus by whom oaths are sworn; Zeus the wise and the just;
Father Zeus, I honor you and ask your blessing.
