Καὶ Βάρδας ὧδε τὴν τελευταίαν μένει
σάλπιγγος ἠχήν, ὃς στρατηγῶν ἐν μάχαις
κατεστρατήγει καὶ παθῶν καὶ βαρβάρων·
ἀλλ' ἡ νόσος τὸν ἄνδρα βαρβαρουμένη
πρὸς τὴν ὁδὸν κατέσχε τὴν ἐναντίαν,
καὶ τοὺς νεογνοὺς παῖδας ὠρφανισμένους,
βιοκλοποῦσα καὶ πρὸ τῆς ἥβης, ἔχει.
ὃν σύμβιος λαβοῦσα τῆς Κρήτης ἄπνουν
ἐκ τῶν πόνων ἀνῆψε πῦρ καί, δακρύοις
λούσασα, θάπτει, σύμβολον σωτηρίας
τῶν εἰκόνων γράψασα τοὺς σεπτοὺς τύπους.
