Wedding Prayer

To Hera on Olympus’ height
The Fates conducted heaven’s Lord
Of lofty throne and at their rite
Sang out this hymn in one accord
Hymen O Hymenaeus
O Hymen Hymenaeus
Love that makes all things to grow
Attended at their marriage bed
Gave rein to their desires and so
Were Zeus and happy Hera wed
Hymen O Hymenaeus
O Hymen Hymenaeus
