First Line: When olympian hera was given
Last Line: Hymen o hymenaios!
Subject(s): Wedding Song; Epithalamium


WHEN Olympian Hera was given
In marriage, the Fates on a day
Led Zeus, in the height of his heaven,
To her bed, singing loud all the way, --
With a Hymen O!
Hymenaios,
Hymen O Hymenaios!

Love rode for good luck in the carriage,
The child of a couple who throve;
Happy bride! with a groom to her marriage
Gold-winged, pulling back as he drove, --
With a Hymen O!
Hymenaios,
Hymen O Hymenaios!
