Λύρης θειοκρότου μελιηδέος εὔλαλος ἠχὼ
Ἱμερόεν κελαδοῦσα βροτοκτόνα πήματα λύει,
Βριαρὰ δαιμονίων ψυχοφθόρα φῦλα διώκει.
Ἄχθει μοχθίζοντας ὀλεθροτόκων μελεδώνων,
Νοῦν τε βυθιζομένους πολυπλανέος ἄλγεσι κόσμου
Ἰᾶται βίβλος ἧδε, θεόπνοον ᾆσμα προφήτου.
Οὐρανίων ἀρετῶν διδάσκαλος ἔπλετο Δαυὶδ
Σωφρονέοντι νόῳ θεοτερπέα ὕμνον ἀείσας.
