Hymns Of The Eastern Church by John Mason Neale

ODE I.

7,7,7,11,11,8

Cosmas, the Melodist, 760

Christos gennatai doxasate.

CHRIST is born! Tell forth His fame!

CHRIST from Heaven! His love proclaim!

CHRIST on earth! Exalt His Name!

Sing to the LORD, O world, with exultation!

Break forth in glad thanksgiving, every nation!

For He hath triumphed gloriously!

Man, in GOD's own Image made,

Man, by Satan's wiles betrayed,

Man, on whom corruption preyed,

Shut out from hope of life and of salvation,

Today CHRIST maketh him a new creation,

For He hath triumphed gloriously!

For the Maker, when His foe,

Wrought the creature death and woe,

Bowed the Heav'ns, and came below,

And in the Virgin's womb His dwelling making

Became true man, man's very nature taking

For He hath triumphed gloriously!

He, the Wisdom, WORD, and Might,

GOD, and SON, and Light of light,

Undiscovered by the sight

Of earthly monarch, or infernal spirit,

Incarnate was, that we might Heav'n inherit;

For He hath triumphed gloriously!

[In Mr. Young's book. The melody by Dr. Schroeder.]
