Τὸν οὐρανὸν τίς δημιουργεῖ τῶ λόγω,
Καὶ γῆν ἐφαπλοῖ, Μωϋσῆς καθὼς γράφει,
Καὶ τᾶλλα πάντα τῶν θεόπτου ῥημάτων,
Ἐνταῦθά μοι γνοὺς ἐκ λόγων Χρυσοστόμου,
Τορώτερον σάλπιγγος ἠχήσεις λέγων˙
Σῆς ἔργα ταῦτα χειρός, ὦ παντοκράτορ,
Ἦι πᾶν ὑπέστη καὶ συνέστη καὶ μένει,
Ὡς οἶδας αὐτός, ὡς ἐπίστασαι μόνος.
Ἀλλʹ ὦ βραχίων δεξιᾶς ἀκηράτου,
Τὸν ταῦτα χειρὸς ἔργα νῦν καλλιγράφου,
Δείξαντα καὶ προθέντα κοινὴν εἰς χάριν,
Σώζειν καταξίωσον οἷς οἶδας τρόποις.
