ORDER OF HOLY UNCTION

(From the Canon of Arsenius)

Ode III

σὺ μόνος ὢν θαυμαστὸς, καὶ ἐν ἀνθρώποις τοῖς πιστοῖς ἵλεως

Euchologion, p. 261

tr., John Brownlie

6.6.8.6

I

Thou Christ alone art great,

In Thee we ever find

Infinite love and tenderness,

And mercy wondrous kind.

II

Now in Thy love divine,

Come to the sufferers' aid;

In mercy Lord be merciful,

On Whom our wounds were laid.

III

Thy sanctifying grace,

O Christ send from above;

Seal Thou our souls and bodies now,

And heal us all in love.
