Orphic Hymn to Hephaestus

draft

Strong minded Hephaestus, unwavering blaze 

 You bring light to us mortals with your flaming rays, 

Holding high the sun torch in your ever strong hands, 

Bringing the red light of flame to all mortal lands. 

Perpetual artisan, workman, blameless cosmic pyre  

All-devouring, all-taming, all-consuming fire 

Sky, Sun, Stars, Moon, undefiled lights 

Not just the fires of Earth, but those of the heights 

Are the gift of Hephaestus to all mortal beings, 

Poured out from his cup of infinite blessings. 

Every home, every city, every nation praises you, 

And even the inner fire of our soul is from you. 

Holy One, hear our call, come drink your libation, 

Help us rejoice in our work, free from temptation, 

Stop the fires of rage that burn through our soul, 

Kindle the glow of joy in hearts that are whole.
