tr., John Brownlie
kai psalletai he Th? Ode
photizou photizou, he nea Hierousalem·
Shine forth, O new Jerusalem!
O Zion, shout with glee!
For now the glory of the Lord
Is risen upon thee;
O mother pure of God's own Son,
Rejoice -- His victory is won!
O dear and sweetest voice divine,
O Christ, Thou wilt befriend,
And lead Thy people safely on
E'en to their journey's end;
Thy faithful people hear Thy voice,
And in that steadfast hope rejoice.
O Christ, our sacred Paschal feast,
The Word, the might of God, --
His wisdom most ineffable
By Thee is shed abroad;
O may we feast on Thee for aye
In Thy blest realm of endless day.
