psuche mou! psuche mou! anasta, ti katheudeis;
Horologion, p.369

tr., John Brownlie


Wake, my soul! In careless slumber,

Wherefore wilt Thou longer lie?

Wake! for lo, the end approacheth,

And the Judgment draweth nigh.


Christ our Lord is ever present,

Sober therefore wait His call,

That the lovingkindness spare thee

Of the Lord who filleth all.
