The Gods Find a Way (To Do What They Want)

Audio – The Gods Find A Way

Euripides uses this same ending song for several of his plays. Svarlien’s translation of it for this play captures the overtone of irony very well:

LYRICS: The designs of the deities take many forms; they often accomplish what no one would hope for. What we expect may not happen at all, while the gods find a way, against all expectation, to do what they want; the gods find a way, however surprising, to do what they want–to do what they want.
