Ἄνευ ὕλης γράφουσι καὶ τοὺς ἀγγέλους,
τὶ καινὸν εἰ γράφουσι καὶ σὲ ταῖς ὕλαις;
Εἰ οὐχὶ καὶ πτέρυγας ἀγγέλων φέρεις.
Μάλιστα νικᾷς ἐξ ὕλης τοὺς ἀγγέλους·
ᾧ πνεῦμα καὶ νοῦς καὶ λόγος πρὸ τοῦ τέλους·
μετὰ τέλος πάλιν δὲ πνεῦμα, νοῦς, λόγος·
ἔλυτρον εἶχες ἐν βίῳ τὸ σαρκίον·
καὶ νῦν πάλιν ἔλυτρον αὐτοῦ τὸν τύπον·
σκιὰν σκιᾶς ἔγραψας, ὦ χαρτογράφε·
σκιὰ γὰρ ἦν τὸ σῶμα Χρυσοστόμου
λεπτυνθὲν (...)
καὶ θαῦμα τοῦτο πῶς σκιὰν σκιᾶς [γράφεις].
