Hail, Themis, bringer of divine law and order.
You were the first instructor of humanity
In the rules of conduct first estabished by the gods--
The laws of good governance, hospitality,
Conduct of assembly, and the proper worship of the gods;
You sit at the right hand of Zeus, giving him counsel;
Yours is the voice of prophecy, of the ancient oracles;
Yours is the changing seasons and the hand of Fate;
The wicked never elude your justice, O Themis.
