Heracles, mighty son of thundering Zeus
and incomparable Alcmene, father of
wise kings and great heroes, clever one, courageous one;
Heracles, defender of the children of men,
your shrines and temples stood throughout the land in times
of old, your name was lauded in prayer, your deeds
proclaimed in story and song. Never has your fame
been forgotten, O Heracles; as your tales are
told and retold, as each generation learns anew
of your legend, your glory grows, your honor
increases. Kind Heracles, brave one, strong one
constant friend of man, I praise and honor you.
