Delia/Thargelia contest submission 5

Phoibe Apollōn! Phoibe Apollōn!
Iē Paiōn! Iē Paiōn!

Great Lord of Immortal Light,
Corruscant and shining bright,
Who art both cruel and kind,
Who shoots arrows from afar,
The confidant of Zeus you are,
Who alone knows his mind!

Phoibe Apollōn! Phoibe Apollōn!
Iē Paiōn! Iē Paiōn!

May you now hear these words of praise,
If ever I served you and made you glad,
I ever my offerings were pleasing, which I had
Burnt to you in sacred flames, as per the ancient ways;

Phoibe Apollōn! Phoibe Apollōn!
Iē Paiōn! Iē Paiōn!

I am your most humble devotee,
Praying to you as highest purifier,
Wash away impurity with your mystic fire
Free me of harm, by divine decree!

Phoibe Apollōn! Phoibe Apollōn!
Iē Paiōn! Iē Paiōn!

Averter of Evil, who releases from hurt,
I thank you ever from the bottom of my heart,
You prevent me from falling apart,
By the blissful power you exert!

Phoibe Apollōn! Phoibe Apollōn!
Iē Paiōn! Iē Paiōn!

I am at peace, I am at peace.
