Σπουδὴ κάθαρσιν, καὶ κάθαρσίς σοι, πάτερ,
φωτὸς μεθέξιν καὶ θεοῦ κοινωνίαν,
καὶ γνῶσιν αὕτη δογμάτων ἀποκρύφων
παρέσχεν εἰς ἔνδειξιν ἐκπρεπεστάτην
πόνων τε τῶν σῶν καὶ Θεοῦ δωρημάτων·
λοιπὸν σιῶπα, πάσα γλῶσσα, καὶ σίγα
ἐκ γῆς λαλοῦσα, κἂν στροφὰς πλουτῇς λόγων,
αὐτὸς δὲ τρανῶς ἐκδίδασκε καὶ λέγε
τὰ τῶν ἀδήλων ἐμφάσεις μυστηρίων·
ὡς εὐπρεπεῖς ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἡμεῖς μανθάνειν.
