Orphic Hymn 1 to Hekate.

“Hekate Einodia,

Trioditis,

lovely dame,

of earthly,

watery,

and celestial frame,

sepulchral,

in a saffron veil arrayed,

pleased with dark ghosts that wander through the shade;

Perseis,

solitary goddess,

hail!

The world’s key-bearer,

never doomed to fail;

in stags rejoicing,

huntress,

nightly seen,

and drawn by bulls,

unconquerable queen;

Leader,

Nymphe,

nurse,

on mountains wandering,

hear the suppliants who with holy rites thy power revere,

and to the herdsman with a favouring mind draw near.”
