Saturday Synaxis






Redeemer of the nations, come!
Ransom of earth, here make Thy home!
Bright Sun, O dart Thy flame to earth,
For so shall God in Christ have birth!
How bright Thy lowly manger beams!
Down earth's dark vale its glory streams:
The splendor of Thy natal night
Shines through all time in deathless light.

- from hymn #158 of The Augustine Hymn Book, 19th century
