Ἡδύτατε σεμνὲ υἱέ, ὦ Νικολῶ ἀναγνῶστα,
πῶς ἔδυς ἐν τοῖς μνήμασι κἀμὲ ἀφεὶς τῶν ἄνω,
τοῦ κόσμου τῶν φθαρτῶν τερπνῶν, τῶν πολυμόχθων τούτων,
καὶ κλαίω καὶ ὀδύρομαι, υἱέ, τῶν ἀρετῶν σου
καὶ τῶν γραφῶν τῶν ἔργων σου χειρὸς τῆς δεξιᾶς σου.
Οἴμοι, τί πέπονθα, υἱέ, ἄριστε κληρονόμε,
τάλας ὁ θύτης σὸς πατήρ, ἀνάξιος ὁ τλήμων.
