τοῦ Πρωτογόνου Ὕμνος

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.

"O Best of Gods, blest daimon crown'd with fire . . . hear, and from punishment my soul absolve, the punishment incurr'd by pristine guilt, thro' Lethe's darkness and terrene desire: and if for long-extended years I'm doom'd in these drear realms Heav'n's exile to remain, O grant me soon the necessary means to gain that good which solitude confers on souls emerging from the bitter waves of fraudful Hyle's black, impetuous flood!"
-Iulianic Hymn to Apollon-Helios, ll. 65-106

"Having come for punishment, one must be punished. One must not pull apart the god within oneself."
-Iamblichus, Vita Pythagorica

"Truth would you teach, or save a sinking land,
All hear, none aid you, and few understand."
-Alexander Pope
