I Call the mighty, holy, splendid light,
aerial, dreadful-sounding, fiery-bright;
This is an interesting Hymn in that it actually sounds like an invocation — one to call the lightning-bearing one. However, this is one where Zeus is called “all-parent” which is a departure from the rest of the hymn where it speaks of the lightning as having an “angry voice”
I like to think of this particular hymn as being more of an actual invitation to the rite which is being observed than anything else. I feel that it would be an interesting one to use as a beginning for an offering rite as it is asking for Zeus to come and attend the rites.
