Βρέφος παλαιῶν ἡμερῶν ὁ πρεσβύτης
νῦν Συμεὼν γέγηθεν ἠγκαλισμένος.
Τὸ πῦρ λαβὼν γὰρ λαβίδος τῆς παρθένου
ἄφλεκτός ἐστι, λάμπεται φέγγει λέγων·
«ἰδοὺ τὸ λύτρον ἦλθε τῆς οἰκουμένης,
ἰδοὺ τὸ φῶς ἔλαμψε τοῖς ἐν τῷ σκότει.
Τοῦτο κραταιὸν τῶν κραταιῶν τὸ βρέφος,
καταθλάσει δὲ καὶ πύλας τοῦ θανάτου
καὶ τοὺς ἐν Ἅιδῃ τῶν βρόχων ἐξελκύσει.»
