Helios, who burns brightest in the sky, the Living Sun, saturating the Earth with radiant nourishment, always are You present, and any absence of You would mean our certain destruction.
Life, in its many forms, is dependent on You, as we watch Your course through the sky, from dawn til dusk. In the night, we miss You only on the dark moon, for that is when Your light is absent from the moon’s reflective face.
O Charioteer, driver of the burning steeds, each day You remind us that life burns because You warm us, because You never fail to renew us in Your light. And with each day, we must make the choice to live better than the day before.
And so we thank You, Helios, and we show our gratitude with this libation, poured now in the night, as You sail back to Your palace in the east. Rest, O Lord, and may Your thirst be quenched by this, our offering.
And when Your light pierces through the veil of darkness once again, we will celebrate Your coming, as the day begins anew. Thank You, Helios, and hail!
