Παῦρα δ’ Ἰωάννου δῄεις ἱερῇ ἐνὶ βίβλῳ
θαύματα δὴ, πολλοὺς δὲ λόγους Χριστοῖο ἄνακτος.
Ἦν γάμος, οἰνοχόοι δ’ ἐκέρων ἐξ ὕδατος οἶνον.
Εἶπε, καὶ υἱὸς ἄνουσος ἔην κάμνων βασιλίσκου.
Εἶπε, λέχος δ’ ἀνάειρεν, ὃς οὐ φύγε δεσμὰ λοετροῖς.
Πέντε δ’ ἔπειτ’ ἄρτων τέλεσεν τέρας. Ἔνθεν ὅδευσεν
πόντον ὑπερζείοντα, καὶ ἐξεσάωσε μαθητάς.
Τυφλὸν δ’ ἐκ γενετῆς ἰήσατο, πηλὸν ἀλείψας.
Τέτρατον ἦμαρ ἔην καὶ Λάζαρος ἔγρετο τύμβου.
Αὐτὰρ ὁ καὶ νεκύεσσι θάνεν, καὶ ζῶσιν ἀναστὰς
Χριστὸς ἄναξ ἀναφανδὸν ὁμίλεεν οἷς ἑτάροισι.
