Βροντῆς γεγωνέστερον Παῦλος ἠχήσας
τὴν βροντοφθογγόφωνον πνεύματος χάριν,
ἅπασαν ἐμβρόντητον σκεδάζει πλάνην.
Τοῖς πιστοῖς ἡδύφθογγον μουσουργεῖ μέλη,
σέβειν τριλαμπὲς μονοκρατές τε φάος.
Ῥήτωρ πυρίπνους ὤφθη τῆς ἐκκλησίας
τὸν Χριστὸν κηρύξας τε πάσῃ τῇ κτίσει.

Translation(s) Paul, resounding with the thunder-voiced grace of the Holy Spirit,
a sound louder than the thunder,
drives away every thunderstruck error.
For the pious he creates a honeysweet-sounding song,
to worship the light with triple brightness that rules solely.
He showed himself to be a fire-breathing orator of the church,
and the proclaimer of Christ for the whole world.
