To Asklepios

Kind Asklepios, healer whose touch brings relief
from sickness and pain, able son of Apollo.
Asklepios, provider of health, dearest of gifts;
destroyer of maladies deadly and trifling;
rebuilder of bodies, restorer of hope,
constant friend of humanity, I honor you.
Asklepios, whose skill passes all limits but one,
and that by will, not nature, I pray to you.
Asklepios, you have kept my family in good health,
you have answered my prayers swiftly and surely.
Of your power and your mercy I have no doubt;
in your favor and your good will I have all faith.
