Alateivia, great and holy, goddess who cares
for frail humanity, who is the shield
of the defenseless, the shelter of the homeless,
who wraps the fearful child in safety and solace,
I call to you for comfort, I beg your favor.
Wise Alateivia, guide of the physician,
friend of the suffering and the stray, it is ever
your way to bless the faithful and the needy.
You have seen much, O goddess, of hardship and war,
of the strength within men and women; yours it is
to hold up the spirit, to sustain the will,
to wash away despair. Goddess, I honor you.
