STICHERON IDIOMELON

(Hymn of Anatolius)

ἡ βασιλεία σου, Χριστὲ ὁ Θεὸς

Menaion, December 25, p. 192

tr., John Brownlie

6.6.8.6

80

I

Firm through the endless years,

Thy kingdom stands secure,

And Thy dominion evermore,

Through ages shall endure.

II

Thou from the Holy Ghost,

Incarnate cam'st to earth,

And, Christ our God! didst stoop

To share man's lowly birth.

III

Thou cam'st on us to shine,

Light from Eternal Light!

And now the Father's brightness rests

On those who dwelt in night.

IV

O, everything that breathes,

To Thee gives homage now--

The glory of Almighty God,

The Father's image, Thou.

V

O Thou Who shinest forth,

Incarnate God most High,

Who art, and wast in ages gone,

To us bring mercy nigh.
