You, O LORD, are our Father; Our
Redeemer from Everlasting is Your name.
(Isa. 63: 16)
Blessed is he, who forgot the talk
of the world by Your talk to him?
As by You, his needs are consummated!
You are his Sun and his daylight?
By Your light, he can see the hidden things!
You are the Father? His Father!
In him, You have given the Spirit of Your Son?
And this Spirit gave him the daring seek from
You everything? the way a son seeks from his father!
With You, he talks all the time?
As he knows other father but You.
(St. John Saba)
