Ὦ τοῦ λόγου θάλασσα μὴ μετρουμένη,
εἰς ἀχανὲς φάνουσα τῆς Γραφῆς πλάτος,
καὶ νῦν σχεθεῖσα μέχρι καὶ ψαλμῶν βάθους,
πληροῦσα πάντα καὶ μέχρι καὶ πυθμένος,
θεωρίας τε τοῦς ἀποκρύγους τόπος,
φαίνουσα λευκοὺς ἐν βυθῷ καὶ μαργάρους,
τῷ διαφανεῖ τῆς σαφηνείας λόγῳ.
Πίνοιμί σου, θάλασσα. τὸ γλυκὺ κῦμα,
Κἂν ἐκφλέκῃς, τὸ δίψος οὐχὶ σβέννυται,
πόθῳ ζέοντι σῶν λογογραφημάτων.
