Sweet Salutions, Lovely Night!
Give my regards to Sleep and Death,
and may Hyonos guard my sleep
tonight.

Older than Zeus;
mightier than the Titans;
springing forth from the
womb of Chaos;

You shelter the Slumbering Sky,
draping it
in your husband's cloak.

Merciful Lady if tonight
your son Thanotos claims me,
beg Hades to be kind,
for I am you faithful
Muse

Forever singing your praises.
