tr., John Brownlie
Deute laoi, ten trisupostaton theoteta proskunesomen
By the Emperor Leo VI., died 911 A.D.
Come ye people, come adore Him,
God in Holy Trinity;
God the Father, Son, and Spirit,
Ever Blessed Unity.
Thine the glory, God Almighty,
To the Son and Spirit given,
Ere upon the world's creation
Dawned the new-born light of heaven.
Holy, holy, we adore Thee,
One in power, in nature one;
God the Father, God the Spirit,
God the Co-Eternal Son.
By the Son the wide creation
Rose where chaos held its sway;
By the Spirit, God Almighty
Swept eternal night away.
Son, the Father's love revealing,
Son, through whom the Spirit came,
Blessed Godhead! endless glory
Be to Thine exalted name.
