fourth sunday of easter

Hymn (Greek, 3rd century)

O brightness of the immortal father's face, most holy, heavenly, blessed,
Lord Jesus Christ, in whom truth and grace are visibly expressed:
The sun is sinking now and one by one the lamps of evening shine;
We hymn the Father eternal, and the Son, and Holy Ghost divine.
You are worthy at all time to receive our hallowed praises, Lord.
O Son of God, be you, in whom we live, through all the world adored.
