O Christ, your ineffable procreation
Preceded the beginning of the ages.
You are the source of light,
You are the shining ray of the Father.
You scatter the gloom
To illuminate the souls of the saints.
You are he who created the world
And the orbits of the stars.
You uphold the center of the earth.
You are the Savior of all.
By You the sun begins his course
And lightens our days.
By you the crescent moon
Dispels the shadows of the night.
By Your aid seeds sprout
And flocks may graze.
From Your never-failing fountain
Gushes the splendor of the life
That gives fertility to the universe.”
(Synesius of Cyrene – d. 414AD, adapted from THE ROOTS OF CHRISTIAN MYSTICISM, p 60)
