"Christian friends, your voices raise.

Wake the day with gladness.

God Himself to joy and praise

turns our human sadness:

Joy that martyrs won their crown,

opened heaven's bright portal,

when they laid the mortal down

for the life immortal."

Words: Saint Joseph the Hymnographer, 9th Century, translated from the Greek. Tune: the same one as "Good King Wenceslaus"
