Your brilliant light brightens those souls who love You,
Who sees beauty in many and loves without bounds.
Clear-sighted Apollon, we honor your birth anew
with poetry, dance, and melodious sounds.
To You we offer first fruits baked with Demeter’s grain
and cake iced with sugar, past and present combined.
We challenge ourselves to offer still more again
through a year filled with Your arts of body and mind.
May our efforts be pleasing to Your glorious eyes.
May we receive Your blessings in each of our lives.
May we be ever grateful for Your presence and light.
May we never forget You in the darkest of night.
May our work keep us mindful of You through each day,
and may we follow Your guidance as we make our way.
