SOME PRESS NOTICES

PREFATORY NOTE

Far from Thy heavenly care,

O King enthroned on high,

To Thy blest Cross, O Christ, we come,

O come let us adore

Christ is born, go forth to meet Him,

What shall we bring to Thee?

In the bliss of old predicted,

Bethlehem rejoices,

To-day the groans of Hades rise,--

No longer now at Eden's gate

Thou one Begotten Son,

When on the cruel Cross

When Lazarus rose at Christ's command,

The wily Judas watches near

O Thou who cloth'st Thyself complete

For all the good performed by Thee,

When Thou wert crucified by men,

Our evening prayers attend,

Light serene of holy glory

We have heard the wondrous story

Thou didst seek the gloom,

Behold the Bridegroom cometh

By St. Cosmas, died 760 A.D.

O Jesus, to Thy servants give

It is a comely thing

Come ye people, come adore Him,

When Thou shalt come, O Lord,

CANON FOR EASTER DAY BY ST. JOHN OF DAMASCUS

Hail the Resurrection day!

Come, let us drink the water new,

Prophet of the Lord, beside us,

Ere the morn in beauty wake,

O Christ, to break the chain

He who in the fiery furnace

The brightest and the fairest,

O Zion, shout with glee!

COLLECTS THE ECTENE AND THE LITANY OF THE DEACON

Lord, to our humble prayers attend,

Choir. Lord, have mercy upon us.

Behold the Bridegroom! Hark the cry,

ST. GREGORY

O Light that knew no dawn,

Christ, for Thee a wreath adorning

Now at this evening hour,

The morning breaks, I place my hand in Thine,

O Word of Truth! in devious paths

SYNESIUS

When darkness falls and night is here,

O may my soul, uncrushed by care,

Up, up, my soul, on wings of praise,

In the Father's glory shining,
