Κρότος ψαλμικὸς ἐμμελέστατος ἄγαν·
θέλγοντα πιστοῦ παντὸς κραδίην ὄντως
πρὸς δόξαν πρὸς αἴνεσιν Θεοῦ τοῦ ζῶντος,
ἀνάγοντα νοῦν πρὸς θείαν γνῶσιν πᾶσαν,
πᾶσαν καθηδύνοντα αἴσθησιν μᾶλλον
ἢ τῶν ληρωδῶν Ὀρφῆος καὶ Πινδάρου.

Translation(s) The sound of psalms is the pinnacle of harmony,
truly charming the heart of every believer
towards the honour and praise of the living God,
leading the mind to all divine knowledge,
gratifying all the senses more
than do foolish Orpheus and Pindar.
