Hymn to Heracles the Lion-Hearted

Of Heracles I sing, Zeus’ son, on earth most strong.
Alkmena’s child was born in Thebes of lovely dance
for she had lain with Kronos’ son of darkling clouds.
He used to wander endless lengths of earth and sea
when he was sent by King Eurystheus.
He acted wild and reckless and suffered much as well,
but now he makes his seat in fair snow-topped Olympus
where he dwells, enjoying lovely-ankled Hebe,
Hail, king, you son of Zeus! Give me success and joy!
