Ὦ χρυσοφεγγῆ καὶ γλυκεῖαν, ἥλιε,
ἀκτῖνα πέμπων, λαμπρὲ παντὸς αἰθέρος
ὀφθαλμὲ κόσμου τ᾽ὄμμα φωταυγέστατον,
ὦ παντεπόπτα Φοῖβε πανδερκέστατε,
ἐξ οὗ τεθρίπποις ἐμβεβὼς χρυσηνίοις
τέμνεις ἀειδίνητος ἀστέρων ὁδόν,
εἶδες πότ᾽ εἶδες, γῆς ὅλης λεύσσων πέδον
πολυσπερῶν τ᾽ἄνωθεν ἀνθρώπων πόλεις,
ἄγαλμα τοῖον, τοῖον ἔρνος εὐθαλές,
οἷος πέφυκε Κάρλος οὗ κτέαρ τόδε;
