ἔκ με πικρῆς ἐκάλεσσε Θεός μέγας ἀγριελαίης,
ποίμνης δ᾽ ἡγεμόνα θῆκε τὸν οὐδ᾽ ὀίων
ἔσχατον ἐκ πλευρῆς δὲ θεόφρονος ὄλβον ἔνειμεν
γῆρας δ᾽ ἐς λιπαρὸν ἱκόμεθ᾽ ἀμφότεροι,.

ἱρὸς ἐμῶν τεκέων ἀγανώτατος: εἰ δὲ τελευτὴν
ἔτλην Γρηγόριος, οὐ μέγα: θνητὸς ἔην.

— Paton edition

Great God called me from the bitter wild-olive,
and made me, who was not even the last of the
sheep, the shepherd of the flock. From my devout
rib he gave me wealth of children, and both of us
reached a prosperous old age. The mildest of my
sons is a priest. If I Gregory suffered death, it is no
marvel ; I was mortal.
