Hello,

So I've been listening to a song I like, and part of it is in Greek. There are like no translations for it online, so I thought I would ask here...
Here's the part of the song in Greek:

Ho Ophios ho archaios
Ho Drakon ho megas
Ho en kai ho on kai
Ho zon tous aionas
Meta tou pneumatos sou
Ho Ophios ho archaios
Ho Drakon ho megas

I only found it in romanized script...

Thanks!

Slight misspellings aside, this is meant to be ancient Greek.  It means:

The ancient snake
the great serpent
the One and the One Who Is, and
the One living through the ages
with your spirit
the ancient snake
the great serpent


And in Greek script:

ὁ ὄφις ὁ ἀρχαῖος
ὁ δράκων ὁ μέγας
τὸ ἓν καὶ ὁ ὢν καὶ
ὁ ζῶν τοὺς αἰῶνας
μετὰ τοῦ πνεύματός σου
ὁ ὄφις ὁ ἀρχαῖος
ὁ δράκων ὁ μέγας
