Hymn Of The Life-giving Cross

O Christ our God
Ceaselessly we worship
Before your Cross
That gives us Life;
And praise your Resurrection,
When on that third day
You made anew
Our failing nature
Showing us so clearly
The Way back to heaven.
For you alone are Good,
The Lover of Humankind.

– John Damascus (676 – 749 AD)
