Invocation of Dionysus

“I call upon loud-roaring and revelling Dionysus,primeval, double-natured, thrice-born, Bacchic lord,wild, ineffable, secretive, two-horned and two-shaped.Ivy-covered, bull-faced, warlike, howling, pure,You take raw flesh, you have feasts, wrapt in foliage, decked with grape clusters. Resourceful Eubouleus, immortal god sired by Zeus
When he mated with Persephone in unspeakable union.Hearken to my voice, O blessed one,and with your fair-girdled nymphs breathe on me in a spirit of perfect agape”

Invocation of Dionysus, Orphic Hym
