Orphic Hymn 34- scent of Apollo
powder of incense

“Come, blessed, Paian, slayer of Tityus, Phoebus, Lycoreus,
Memphite, beautifully honored, invoked with the cry, giver of happiness,
with the golden lyre, who protect the sowing and the plow, Pythion, Titan,
Gryneios, Smyntheos, slayer of the Python, Delphic, diviner,
wild, Daimon bringer of light, lovable, youth, glorious,
…guide of the Muses, preceptor of the chorus, who strike from afar, darter,
Branchios and Didymeos…acting from afar, Lossia, sacred,
Delian Lord, who have the eye who sees all things and who gives light to the mortals,
golden-haired, who reveal truthful prophecies and oracles;
hear with benevolent spirit me who am praying in the behalf of men:
because You behold all this endless Ether
and the happy Earth from above, and through the dim light
in the quiet of the night below the darkness of starry eyes
You have your roots under the surface of the earth, and You hold the boundaries of the universe
all; You take care of the beginning and of the end,
You make bloom every thing, all the celestial sphere You tune
by the melodious lyre, sometimes going to the limit of the the shortest string,
sometimes instead of the longest one, sometimes according to the doric style
tuning all the celestial sphere You differentiate the living species,
with the harmony making fit for men the universal destiny,
mixing identic proportion of winter and summer to one another,
distinguishing in the longest strings the winter, in the shortest ones the summer,
in the doric style the blooming flower of the very lovable springtime.
From this the mortals celebrate You with the name of Lord,
Pan, two-horned God, who send the whistles of the winds;
because You have the seal which gives form to the whole universe.
Hear, blessed saving the initiates of supplicant voice.”

(Apollo, Fourth century BCE. Museo Etrusco, Roma)
