Apollo, lord, you patron and guide,
of everything in nature, you who trace back everything
to one, and submit the whole itself, so various
so rich in sounds, to a single harmony;
from concordance, you give wisdom
and justice to the souls, the most beautiful things,
and health and beauty to the bodies.
Inspire the desire of divine beauties,
lord, to our souls. Hail, Paian.
George Gemistos Plethon
