SOME PRESS NOTICES
Far from Thy heavenly care,
O King enthroned on high,
To Thy blest Cross, O Christ, we come,
O come let us adore
Christ is born, go forth to meet Him,
What shall we bring to Thee?
In the bliss of old predicted,
To-day the groans of Hades rise,--
No longer now at Eden's gate
Thou one Begotten Son,
When on the cruel Cross
When Lazarus rose at Christ's command,
The wily Judas watches near
O Thou who cloth'st Thyself complete
For all the good performed by Thee,
When Thou wert crucified by men,
Our evening prayers attend,
Light serene of holy glory
We have heard the wondrous story
Thou didst seek the gloom,
Behold the Bridegroom cometh
By St. Cosmas, died 760 A.D.
O Jesus, to Thy servants give
It is a comely thing
Come ye people, come adore Him,
When Thou shalt come, O Lord,
CANON FOR EASTER DAY BY ST. JOHN OF DAMASCUS
Hail the Resurrection day!
Come, let us drink the water new,
Prophet of the Lord, beside us,
Ere the morn in beauty wake,
O Christ, to break the chain
He who in the fiery furnace
The brightest and the fairest,
O Zion, shout with glee!
COLLECTS THE ECTENE AND THE LITANY OF THE DEACON
Lord, to our humble prayers attend,
Choir. Lord, have mercy upon us.
HYMNS FROM THE EARLY GREEK POETS NOT FOUND IN THE SERVICE-BOOKS OF THE GREEK CHURCHST. METHODIUS
Behold the Bridegroom! Hark the cry,
O Light that knew no dawn,
Christ, for Thee a wreath adorning
Now at this evening hour,
The morning breaks, I place my hand in Thine,
O Word of Truth! in devious paths
When darkness falls and night is here,
O may my soul, uncrushed by care,
Up, up, my soul, on wings of praise,
In the Father's glory shining,
