Occurrence 33036

Ἀναβαίνετε πατέρες ἀναβαίνετε
Τὴν Ἰακὼβ Κλίμακα καινίζεις, πάτερ,
Οὐχ ἣν πρὸς ἡμᾶς κατιὼν ὁ Δεσπότης
Ὑπηρέτην δείκνυσι θείων πραγμάτων,
Ἀλλ’ ἣν ἐπεστήριξεν ἀρετῶν βάσιν.
Πρὸς οὐρανοὺς ἄγουσα(ν) ἀνθρώπων γένος
Στενὴν τραχεῖαν δυσχερῆ τοῖς ῥᾳθύμοις,
Ἣν στηλογραφεῖς ὡς ἄριστος ζωγράφος,
Πρὸς ἣν ὁδηγὸς ἀπλανὴς φάνηθί μοι·
Στήλην γὰρ ἱστὼν τοὺς λόγους σοῦ σὺν πόθῳ
Οὐνίφος οἴκτιστος ἐν μονοτρόποις.
