Need help finding a certain hymn in Greek
« on: June 07, 2011, 09:55:45 PM »
Could anyone help me find the text of this hymn in Greek?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9zlop4e6tA&feature=related

I know it's from the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross and it sounds absolutely beautiful in Latin and Greek. If I could have the Greek text, that would be great. :) Thanks in advance.

In Christ,
Andrew

As for the Greek, the first part is the Trisagion for the Feast, except the word Δέσποτα was replaced with Κύριε.

Τὸν Σταυρόν σου προσκυνοῦμεν Δέσποτα, καὶ τὴν ἁγίαν σου Ἀνάστασιν δοξάζομεν.

Next he sings a part from "Having beheld the resurrection of Christ", the line "O come, all ye faithful, let us venerate Christ's holy Resurrection" although again he changes the words slightly

Δεῦτε πάντες οἱ πιστοὶ προσκυνήσωμεν τὴν τοῦ Χριστοῦ ἁγίαν Ἀνάστασιν (the original).

Δεῦτε πάντες προσκυνοῦμεν τὴν τοῦ Χριστοῦ ἁγίαν Ἀνάστασιν (what he sings).

And what follows is part of the Praises, Psalm 148.  The lines sung in Greek are in bold

Ψαλμὸς 148ος

Ἀλληλούϊα· Ἀγγαίου καὶ Ζαχαρίου.

Αἰνεῖτε τὸν Κύριον ἐκ τῶν οὐρανῶν· αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν τοῖς ὑψίστοις.
2 αἰνεῖτε αὐτόν, πάντες οἱ ἄγγελοι αὐτοῦ· αἰνεῖτε αὐτόν, πᾶσαι αἱ δυνάμεις αὐτοῦ.
3 αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἥλιος καὶ σελήνη, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν πάντα τὰ ἄστρα καὶ τὸ φῶς.
4 αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν οἱ οὐρανοὶ τῶν οὐρανῶν καὶ τὸ ὕδωρ τὸ ὑπεράνω τῶν οὐρανῶν.
5 αἰνεσάτωσαν τὸ ὄνομα Κυρίου, ὅτι αὐτὸς εἶπε, καὶ ἐγενήθησαν, αὐτὸς ἐνετείλατο, καὶ ἐκτίσθησαν.
6 ἔστησεν αὐτὰ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦ αἰῶνος· πρόσταγμα ἔθετο, καὶ οὐ παρελεύσεται.
7 αἰνεῖτε τὸν Κύριον ἐκ τῆς γῆς, δράκοντες καὶ πᾶσαι ἄβυσσοι·
8 πῦρ, χάλαζα, χιών, κρύσταλλος, πνεῦμα καταιγίδος, τὰ ποιοῦντα τὸν λόγον αὐτοῦ·
9 τὰ ὄρη καὶ πάντες οἱ βουνοί, ξύλα καρποφόρα καὶ πᾶσαι κέδροι·
10 τὰ θηρία καὶ πάντα τὰ κτήνη, ἑρπετὰ καὶ πετεινὰ πτερωτά·
11 βασιλεῖς τῆς γῆς καὶ πάντες λαοί, ἄρχοντες καὶ πάντες κριταὶ γῆς·
12 νεανίσκοι καὶ παρθένοι, πρεσβύτεροι μετὰ νεωτέρων· 13 αἰνεσάτωσαν τὸ ὄνομα Κυρίου, ὅτι ὑψώθη τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ μόνου·
ἡ ἐξομολόγησις αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ γῆς καὶ οὐρανοῦ. 14 καὶ ὑψώσει κέρας λαοῦ αὐτοῦ·
ὕμνος πᾶσι τοῖς ὁσίοις αὐτοῦ, τοῖς υἱοῖς Ἰσραήλ, λαῷ ἐγγίζοντι αὐτῷ.

Thanks!  I've been a lurker for quite some time, but it's nice to actually have an account and the ability to post.
