The Hymn on the End of the World -
A Manichaean liturgical hymn in Parthian.

The message of heaven and the earth`s answer :

Hear, oh world, the words of the Lord!
We would invoke the gods that they may save us
from this evil age of tyranny, full of strife and unbelief.
Oh angels and twins, save us from all distress.
That time (the end) has come,
Just as the redeemer (Mani) has written.

Here ends the hymn on the End of the World.
