Occurrence 18164
(formerly occ/1484)

Εῖδες τὸ πῦρ, ἄνθρωπε, τῶν σπλάγχνων ἔνδον;
οὐ κατεκαύθης, οὐ γὰρ ἐκ ξύλων ἔχει
ἄναψιν αὐτό, κἂν φλογίζῃ γὰρ μένει
δροσίζον ὄντως ψυχαγωγοῦν καρδίαν.
Φύλαξον οὐκοῦν ἔνδον αὐτὴν τήν χάριν,
μὴ πῦρ σβέσῃ σου σφαλμάτων θείαν δρόσον,
ἀλλὰ δρόσος πῦρ καὶ τὸ πῦρ ἔστω δρόσος
