When David discovered the convent’s sad fate,
He called to old Ohan, “Dear Uncle, please wait!
I am an orphan, no keeper on earth.
You are my father, though not by birth.
I want to stay here on Maruta’s peak,
until I’ve rebuilt our convent unique.
Provide me, my keeper, five hundred skilled men,
and five thousand workers to build it again.
Just as it was, we’ve no time to lose.
Send them this week, please don’t refuse.”
Just as he promised, Ohan brought a corps
of five thousand five hundred superior
workers to rebuild the convent on high.
Banging and clanging, it rose to the sky,
just as it was, in all of its glory,
the Church of Our Lady, a blessed promontory.
The monks to the convent quickly returned.
Chanting soared up again, candles were burned.
David came down from the convent sublime
restored to the splendor of Great Mher’s time.
