Ἡ τοῦ προφήτου ψαλμικωτάτη λύρα
πλήκτροις λογισμῶν εὐσεβῶν κρατουμένη
ἀθυμίαν τρέπει μὲν ἐκ τῆς καρδίας,
σοβεῖ δὲ πάντα τῶν παθῶν τὰ θηρία
καὶ νοῦν ἀνυψοῖ πρὸς θεωρίας βάθη,
παύει δε θυμόν, ἡμεροῖ σαρκός θράση
καὶ δαιμόνων φάλαγγας ὡς πορρωτάτω
ἵστησιν ἐκτεφροῦσα πυρί τῶν λόγων.
Εἰ γὰρ προσεγγίσοι τις εὐσεβοφρόνως
τοῖς κρουμάτων τῶν τοῦδε παγγλύκοις κρότοις
ῥᾷον κατασπᾷ τὴν φρενῶν ἀταξίαν
καὶ πρὸς πόλον τίθησι τὴν θεωρίαν.
