Praise of the Great Ones
Hymn ascribed to Mani.
Praised, living, vigilant and immortal are you, oh beautiful form,
Lord Jesus the Splendor, best loved of all the kings of Light,
Give to us, Lord, of your good gifts, for you are the beginning of
all good gifts ...
You are the physician ...
You are, Lord, the redeemer, the savior ...
(a number of lines missing)
Praised, living, vigilant and immortal are you, oh blessed sign,
Spirit and beautiful form, Lord Jesus the Splendor!
Most noble of the beings of light,
... loving and beneficent one,
Ardent, bright and glorious one!
You are our God ...
Ruler, God ... Life-giver!
