Every ear has been amazed
At the unspeakable condescension of Mine,
For of his own good will, the most-high
Has condescended even unto the flesh,
Becoming man through a virgin’s womb.
Therefore, you, unfaithful ones, extol Me.
Having an impregnable and invincible stronghold, My martyrs
Brought to naught the godless commands of their tormentors;
And while yet in the flesh they were visibly granted My Kingdom,
Being illumined by the beams of the Trinity who is all-worthy of praise.
Bitter Hell was destroyed when I destroyed it.
I raised from the dead those who had lain asleep there throughout all the ages.
But now also, since I am merciful
I grant My unfading light to them [who have come to Me]
