Hymns Of The Holy Eastern Church by John Brownlie

STICHERA

(Sung after the Canon for Easter Day)

humnoumen sou Christe, to soterion pathos
Pentecostarion, p.5

tr., John Brownlie

10.10.10.8

I

Thy glorious rising on the first of days,

We come adoring, and with grateful praise

Thy saving Passion sing in joyful lays; --

With trumpet sound His praise advance.

II

O Christ Who, on the Cross in dark dismay

Didst vanquish death and cast his bands away, --

Almighty, in our life give peace, we pray;

Praise Him with cymbals in the dance.

III

Thou Christ Who, from the depths of hades brought

The life to mortal man his spirit sought;

May we with pure heart hymn Thee as we ought; --

With trumpet sound His praise advance.

IV

We praise Thee that in condescension Thou,

Of Virgin born, to man's estate didst bow,

One with th' Eternal Father then as now; --

Praise Him with cymbals in the dance.

V

He, on the Cross Who freely bare our woes,

And from the grave a glorious Victor rose,

Now on the world His saving grace bestows; --

With trumpet sound His praise advance,

Praise Him with cymbals in the dance.
