Symeon the New Theologian (949-1022)
Come, true light. Come, life eternal.
Come, hidden mystery...Come, reality beyond all words.
Come, person beyond all understanding. Come, rejoicing without end.
Come, light that knows no evening.
Come, unfailing expectation of the saved.
Come, raised of the fallen. Come, resurrection of the dead.
Come, all-powerful, for unceasingly you create...
Come, for your name fills our hearts with longing and is ever on our lips...
Come, for you are yourself the desire that is within me.
Come, the consolation of my humble soul.
Come, my joy, my endless delight.
