A Hymn to Dionysus

All hail Dionysus

lord of the vine

Liber Pater

source and surcease of madness

 

It is you whom I honor

as I prepare my cups

and when I empty them

in vino veritas

 

You are Zagreus

to whom Zeus bequeathed the throne

You are the bringer of wine,

the liberator and savior of mortals

 

It is you to whom I pray

when my mind betrays me

when I weep for no reason

when I lay shaking from passions

which even I cannot name

 

All hail Dionysus

lord of the vine

Liber Pater

source and surcease of madness
