From the Orthodox funeral service, quoted in “The Orthodox Way”

Of old thou hast created me from nothing,

And honored me with thy divine image;

But when I disobeyed thy commandment,

Thou hast returned me to the earth whence I was taken.

Lead me back again to thy likeness,

Refashioning my ancient beauty.
