Lyrics adapted from "The Hymns of Orpheus".

lyrics

Hear Neptune ruler, of the sea profound
Whose liquid grasp, begirts the solid ground
Who at the bottom, of the stormy main
Dark and deep bosom’d, holdst thy watery reign

Thy awful hand the brazen trident bears
And ocean’s utmost bound thy will reveres

Thee I invoke, whose steeds the foam divide
From whose dark locks, the briney waters glide
Whose voice (loud) founding,
thru the roaring deep
Drive all it’s billows, in a raging heap

When fiercely riding thru the boiling sea
Thy hoarse command the trembling waves obey
Earth-shaking, dark-haired god,
the liquid planes,
The third division, fate to thee ordains
Caerulian daemon to survey
Well pleased the ocean monsters play

Dark foundations of the rolling sea
Earth’s wide bounds, belong to thee
Great daemon source, daemon of the deep
Thou who doff, roots of ocean keep

Ocean I call whose nature ever flows
From who at first both gods & men arose
Sire incorruptible whose waves surround
Send on our scared rites a health abounding
Send to our ships a prosperous breeze
Waft them safely o’er stormy seas, please?
