How are You at once the source of fireby Symeon the New Theologian
English version by George A. Maloney, S.J.
Original Language Greek
How are You at once the source of fire,
how also the fountain of dew?
How at once burning and sweetness,
how a remedy for all corruption?
How do You make gods of us men,
how do You make darkness light?
How do You make one reascend from Hell,
how do You make us mortals imperishable?
How do You draw darkness to light,
how do You triumph over night?
How do You illumine the heart?
how do You transform me entirely?
How do You become one with men,
how do You make them sons of God?
