(From the Canon for Apocreos)
hote hexeis ho Theos en muriasi kai chiliasi
tr., John Brownlie
When with Powers of heaven attending,
Angel hosts ten thousand strong,
Christ the Lord to earth descending,
Brings the hour expected long;
Rising to the clouds in air,
Give us grace to meet Thee there.
When for Judgment, earth awaiting
Looks towards the awful throne,
Word nor deed of mine relating,
Ne'er my penitence disown;
From the ill in life I've done,
Save me, Thou Almighty One.
