Prayer to Cybele

"Hail Great Idaean Mother of the Gods!
Hail O Most Holy Elder Goddess!
We humbly pray, O Cybele,
Berecynthian Mother Dindymene!
Take us under Thy protection
That Thou may defend us.
We offer this prayer
To graciously grant peace and joy,
And health to our families.
Look favorably upon us
and never abandon Thy children."

(Cybele, bronze, 2nd century CE; Metropolitan Museum of Art)
