hos hai taxeis nun ton angelon en ourano
tr., John Brownlie
As angel hosts with heavenly songs,
Before Thy throne adore Thee,
So would we Lord, in humbler strains,
Pour out our hearts before Thee.
Forever blessed be Thy name,
Thrice Holy, we revere Thee; --
Shew mercy as Thy people now,
In fear and hope draw near Thee.
Thou from eternal ages, God,
The Heaven of heavens containing;
Thou Christ our Lord, Thou Spirit good,
In Trinity remaining.
Daring like cherubim on high,
Who praising stand around Thee,
We bring the tribute of our hearts,
And with our praise surround Thee.
