Hymns Of The Greek Church by John Brownlie

In the bliss of old predicted,

tr., John Brownlie

8,7,8,7,7,7

ho ouranos kai he ge semeron prophetikos euphrainesthosan

(Stichera Idiomela)

I

In the bliss of old predicted,

Heaven and earth to-day rejoice;

Men and angels, one in spirit,

Shout aloud in gleeful voice;

For, to those in darkness drear,

God in human flesh is near.

II

Cave and manger show the mystery;

Shepherds tell the wondrous tale;

Bearing gifts to lay before Him

From the East the Magi hail;

Taught by angel words to sing,

We unworthy praises bring.

III

Glory be to God eternal!

Peace on earth its reign begin!

For the one Desire of nations

Comes to save us from our sin;

Freedom He will now bestow

From the bondage of the foe.
