τοῦ Πρωτογόνου Ὕμνος

Post  Erodius on Thu Nov 28, 2013 1:53 pm

ὁ τοῦ Πρωτογόνου Ὕμνος
ὑπ' Ἐρωδίου ἔγγραφος
τὴν Ἀρχὴν καλέω, τὴν πάντος τοῦ κόσμου
ὃς Πέρας τῷ ὀνόματι γέγονε κενῷ
ἐκ Χρυσέου Ὠιοῦ, ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ Χρόνου,
δρακόντι δεσμίου τῷ ἀρχείῳ σκότῳ.
ὁ Φάνης δὲ λέγεται, μετὰ γὰρ ἐκεῖνο
ἀφ’ αὑτῆς φαεσφόρας γαστέρος Σὺ ἔπτου,
σκότον τε μέλανα τῷ φωτὶ ἔμιξας.
τὸν Οὐρανὸν ἔποιες – Γῆν τε ἐγκάρπην,
καὶ Ἥλιον ἔθηκας ταὐτὰ ἀρξόντα.
ὦ Ἰαοῖ, Πρωτόγονε, Ὕψιστε δαίμον,
ὃς Σαυτὸν ὁρᾷς, χ’ ὑπὸ Σοῦ ὁράῃ
τὴν ψυχὴν ἐμοῦ ἐν τ’ αἰθέρι σῷζε.

Hymn to Protogonus, my own composition.
Translation forthcoming.

All hear, none aid you, and few understand."
