Hymn of the Ressurection

Most Holy Lord,
Receive our evening prayers,
And grant to us
Forgiveness of our sins.
None else but you
Has shown within this world,
The Ressurection.

‘Go round Sion, you peoples,
And encircle her,
Give glory in him
To Him who rose from the dead,
Who is Himself our very God;
For from the midst of all our sins,
He has redeemed us all.

Come, my people,
Let us sing a hymn,
Venerating Christ,
To glorify his Resurrection
From the dead.
He is our very God
And has redeemed the world
From all the Enemy’s deceit.

– St John of Damascus, 8th Century
