Prayer to Herakles During Travel

who never rested until you laid yourself,
live and in pain,
on your own funeral pyre,
lit by a friend,
from which to rise, once mortal,
to seat among the immortal gods:
Traveler, aid those who travel;
aid me on my way.
Succeeder in trials,
bring me to success through your invincible strength:
closest of the gods to man.
