Zeus

Father Zeus, protector of travellers,
kind-hearted friend of those alone
in new places, of strangers and wanderers;
guardian of the community,
upholder of the kindest customs,
watchful patron of hospitality,
I honor you. Zeus, ever-present witness
of oaths made with good faith or without,
with care or in haste, all are sacred,
all must be fulfilled, all are known to you.
Zeus, wielder of lightning, master of storms,
far-seeing, far-roaming god, I praise you.
