As soon as your mind has experiencedby Symeon the New Theologian
English version by John Anthony McGuckin
Original Language Greek
As soon as your mind has experienced
what the scripture says:
"How gracious is the Lord,"
it will be so touched with that delight
that it will no longer want to leave the place of the heart.
It will echo the words of the apostle Peter:
"How good it is to be here."
