Hymns From The Morningland by John Brownlie

Ho Pater eudokesen,

Stichera Idiomela. Christmas.

tr., John Brownlie



He came because the Father willed,

And from the midst of heaven's renown,

The promise to our world fulfilled,

And won a kingdom for His crown.


He came because He willed to bear

The burden that His love imposed;

And all our lot of sorrow share,

Until the day in darkness closed.


Ah! angels hailed that morning bright,

And in the heavens their carols sung;

But God Himself was hid in night,

When sin and death their arrows flung.


But not to sink beneath their power,

The God-man girt Him for the fray;

And from the darkness of that hour,

There sprang the light of endless day.


And wounded souls the triumph knew;

Fresh courage to the faint was given;

And e'en the dead to life anew,

Rose in the glorious might of heaven.


For sin was crushed, and death was slain; --

All hail, the great victorious Son,

Who mounts the throne of heaven again,

To rule the kingdom He has won.
