“The Light That Gives Us Heaven”: A Greek Epigram on Paul

Anonymous | Translated by E. J. Hutchinson

Παῦλος, ἐπεὶ θεῖον σέλας οὐρανοῦ ἔδρακεν ἄντην,

    φωτὸς ἀπειρεσίου γαῖαν ἔπλησεν ὅλην.

When Paul had seen the Light of God, the Light

    That shines in heaven, face to face,

He filled with boundless light the earth, the light

    That gives us heaven, face to face.
