So, who out there is studied-up on their Greek / Roman pantheon? I wrote a sonnet some year back that had refound it's ways into my hands. Now I remember doing a lot of research for this piece but I am still unsure about a few thins and before I set it to music I would like to get some opinions on the correctness of it. Even though I no longer see Apollo as my patron God, I still think It would be nice to remember him. So here goes nothing...

Hail Phoebus Apollo
Lord of the Silver Bow, Far Shooting Archer God
God of light, Shinning rays chasing away the dark
God of music, inspiration to passions and higher things
God of truth, who can tell no lies and to whom no lies can be told
God of health, sustainer of life and happiness
Wolf God, The Lycian, God of Lycia
Hear the call of a barbarian(Not Greek or Roman) woman and come if you will
Know the truths in my heart
Bless my song so it may please your ears
Grace my body with health so it may honor you
May your light forever wash over me and I will never fear the dark
May I walk your path a bright glad servant and understand your teachings
Delian of Delos
Pythian
The Lycian
Phoebus Apollo

I have been a devotee of Apollo for several years now. As far as accuracy goes, I find no problems here. :-)
