Hebe

This is from my old blog, the Geekie Hellenist.

This is a prayer to Hebe. I got this prayer from the book ‘In Praise of Olympus: Prayers to the Greek Gods’ by Hearthstone.

 

Hebe, fair-haired daughter of Zeus and great Hera, bright-winged goddess, granter of the bloom of youth, the vital spark, the love of life that drives a soul to hold tight to the world.

Hebe, cupbearer, your glory it is to carry sweet nectar and ambrosia to the deathless gods.

Hebe, companion of laughter-loving Aphrodite, well-garlanded goddess, grace and beauty are within you.

Hebe of the fair ankles, ever revered among gods and mortals both, bride of great Hercules whose labors twelve are told wherever legends flow.

Friend of the Graces, friend of dear Harmony, Friend of the blushing bride on her wedding day, friend of the supplicant seeking pardon.

Hebe, lovely one, goddess of many blessings, I praise and honor you.
