This, your great name, is upon me, o faultless,
self-born one, who is not outside of me.
I see you, O one invisible before everyone.
For who will be able grasp you in another language?
Now that i have known you, I have merged myself
with the one who does not change. I have armed
myself with luminous armor and have been luminous.
For the mother was there on account of the lovely
beauty of grace. Therefore I have reached out my
I have been formed by the ring of the wealth of
light which is in my breast, which gives form
to the multitude born in the light, where no
accusation reaches. I shall sing your glory truly,
for I have grasped you. SOU IES IDE AEIO AEIE OSIS O!
Eternal, eternal god of silence, I honour you completely.
You are my place of rest, O son, ES ES O E,

He exists, he raises the one by whom you shall purify
me into your life according to your indestructable name.
Therefore the fragrance of life is in me. I have blended
it with water, from the pattern of all the rulers,
so that I shall live with you in the peace of the saints,
you who exist forever.
