STICHERA OF APOCREOS

βίβλοι ἀνοιγήσονται

Triodion, p. 22

tr., John Brownlie

7.7.7.7.7

I

Surely comes the dreadful day

When before the judgment bar

Men shall stand in vast array,

And the books of God reveal

Deeds of life that men conceal.

II

At the gnashing and the tears,

Every heart shall melt with grief,

While the sinner filled with fears

By the doom of judgment goes

To a life of endless woes.

III

Wherefore we entreat thee, Lord,--

Thou Who art exceeding good,--

Spare us, who with one accord,

Hymn the grace divinely broad

Of our ever-pitying God.
