Chorus
May destiny still find me winning the praise of reverent purity in all words and [865] deeds sanctioned by those laws of sublime range, called into life through the high clear aether, whose father is Olympus alone. Their parent was no race of mortal men, [870] no, nor shall oblivion ever lay them to sleep: the god is mighty in them, and he does not grow old.
