Κρεῖσσον ἔφυσεν ὁ χρυσοὺς Ἰωάννης,
σβεσθέντα τὸν ἥλιον μὴ φαίνειν ὅλως,
ἥπερ τὸ ψαλτήριον λαβεῖν ἀργίαν.
Ψαλλόμενον γὰρ εὐλογεῖ καὶ δοξάζει,
τὴν πανσθενουργὸν καὶ ὑπέρθεον φύσιν,
θεὸν ὑπεράρχιον, νοῦν λόγον, πνεῦμα,
τοὺς δήμους τέρπον, τῶν οὐρανίων νόων,
ἐκ δείματι πνεύματα τῆς πονηρίας,
φρουρεῖ ψυχὰς, σώματα τῶν μετιόντων,
σοβεῖ πειρασμοῦς, τιθασεύει τὰ πάθη.
