HYMN TO THE TRINITY

ὡς αἱ τάξεις νῦν τῶν ἀγγέλων ἐν οὐρανῷ

Horologion, p. 44

tr., John Brownlie

8.7.8.7

108

I

As angel hosts with heavenly songs,

Before Thy throne adore Thee,

So would we Lord, in humbler strains,

Pour out our hearts before Thee.

II

Forever blessed be Thy name,

Thrice Holy, we revere Thee;--

Shew mercy as Thy people now,

In fear and hope draw near Thee.

III

Thou from eternal ages, God,

The Heaven of heavens containing;

Thou Christ our Lord, Thou Spirit good,

In Trinity remaining.

IV

Daring like cherubim on high,

Who praising stand around Thee,

We bring the tribute of our hearts,

And with our praise surround Thee.
