Brilliant Apollo, giver of far-sight,
swift are your arrows, sure is your aim.
In intellect, quick and rational thought,
in science and medicine, healing and health,
and always in beauty, music and art,
in these we see you, great son of Zeus.
Matchless Apollo, archer without flaw,
dream-granting friend of seeker and seer,
patron of scholar and philosopher,
we thank you for reason, for art's keen eye,
for health for those ailing in body or soul.
Bright Apollo, we praise and honor you.
