My formulation, which is what Jim SAYS that he sang, went as follows:
'DOXA EN hUYISTOIS QEWi KAI EPI GHS TO PALAI ELPIZOMENON LEXIKON TO BDAG
ANQRWPOIS EUDOKIAS. NAI, KURIE, DOXAZOMEN SE MEGALWS, ESTIN GAR PISTIS
ELPIZOMENWN hUPOSTASIS, PRAGMATWN ELEGCOS OU BLEPOMENWN"
but since we can detect either words or melody from the picture, and as
John Keats wrote, "Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter
...", perhaps we should let things stand. We have lately witnessed events
of apocalyptic gravity, if you can believe it ...
