STICHERA

(From the Burial Office for a Child)

ὢ τίς μὴ θρηνήσει τέκνον μου

Euchologion, p. 481

tr., John Brownlie

6.6.6.6.6

I

Who would not weep my child

To see thee still and dead?--

Thou from maternal arms,

Even as a bird hast fled:--

Who would not weep my child?

II

Who would not weep my child

To see thy faded brow,

Once like the lily, fair,

But lost to beauty now?--

Who would not weep my child?

III

Who would not weep my child?--

Like ship on boundless sea,

That leaves no track behind,

Lo, thou art gone from me,--

Who would not weep my child?
