The Beauty of the Church

1.  This day are opened, our mouths to give thanks.  They who opened the breaches, have opened my sons’ mouths.  Thank the Merciful, who has delivered the men of our city, nor thought at that time of exacting the debts that were due by us.  When they rose up they that took us captive, the worlds in our deliverance, tasted of Thy graciousness.

From all that have mouths, glory be to Thy grace!

2.  He has saved us without wall, and taught us that He is our wall: He has saved us without king and made us know that is our king:  He has saved us, in each and all, and showed us that He is All:  He has saved us in His grace and again reveals, that freely He has mercy and quickens.  From every boaster, He takes away his boasting, and gives it to His own grace.

From all that have mouths, glory be to Thy grace!

3.  The sound of all mouths, is too little for Thy praise:  for lo! in the hour when our light was smoking, and was at the point to be quenched (seeing that all is easy to Thee) of a sudden it awoke and shone!  Who has seen these two marvels, that for him whose hope

From all that have mouths, glory be to Thy grace!

St. Ephraim the Syrian
