Occurrence 25904
(formerly occ/9938)

+ κρύσσον ἔφυσεν ὁ χρυσοὺς ἰωάννης,
σβεσθέντα τὸν ἥλιον | μὴ φαίνειν ὅλως,
ἥπερ τὸ ψαλτήριον λαβεῖν ἀργίαν· |
ψαλλόμενον γὰρ εὐλογεῖ καὶ δοξάζει,
τὴν πανσθενουρ|γὸν καὶ ὑπέρθεον φύσιν,
θ(εὸ)ν ὑπεράρχιον, νοῦν λόγον, πν(εῦμ)α, |
τοὺς δήμους τέρπον, τῶν οὐρανίων νόων·
ἐκ δειματὶ | πνεύματα τῆς πονηρίας,
φρουρεῖ ψυχὰς, σώματα | τῶν μετιόντων·
σοβεῖ πειρασμοῦς, τιθασεύει τα | πάθη.
