Saint Ephrem's Hymns on Fasting- Hymns- 3.- 1: 04
- The Fast And the Temptation of the Lord 1:04
This is the fast through which greed escapes
The peoples at the top of the mountain ; clothed in fasting he
overcame the Greedy One.
Who had clothed himself with the food of Adam's house.
The Lord of Victories gave us his weapon, he ascended on high to be
Who would not run to the weapon by which God overcame
It is a shameful thing, my brothers, to be bested by the weapon
Which overcomes and causes to overcome all creation.
Blessed is the King who adorned the Holy Church with Fasting, Prayer
