Chorus
The maids of Delos raise their song of joy, circling round the temple gates in honor of Leto's fair son, [690] the graceful dancer; so I with my old lips will cry aloud songs of joy at your palace-doors, like the swan, aged singer; for there is a good [695] theme for minstrelsy; he is the son of Zeus; yet high above his noble birth tower his deeds of prowess, for his toil secured this life of calm for man, [700] having destroyed all fearsome beasts.
