Sacred Song from the Byzantine Pulpit: Romanos the Melodist

By R. J. Schork | Go to book overview

NOTES
1.
See Hymnes II, 364-65.
2.
It is not clear whether this stanza is meant to be part of the leper's appeal to Christ (as punctuated by the editors) or an explanatory aside by the Melodist. I select the latter option, though in either case the function of the comparison in the kontakion would be the same.

Healing the Leper

1. You once cleansed the leper of his disease, Almighty Lord.
Have mercy and cure our spiritual suffering,
through the prayers of God's Mother, Physician of our souls,
the Lover of mankind, Savior and only Sinless One.

1. Let us sing a hymn to the God and Benefactor of all humans, to
Christ our Redeemer.
He brings delight to our souls and is the root of all good,
because he is the joy and the salvation of every mortal,
the dependable Physician, kind and full of mercy.

As God he manages the universe with ineffable wisdom 5
and cures our souls' sufferings with his divine will.
As the only, undivided Master, he guides the world;
he has and supplies grace and glory to all --
as well as forgiveness of sins --
the Lover of mankind, Savior and only Sinless One.10

6: Ps.40:5 L8: 1Th.2:20 L

2. The Master and Source of all time came into the world during
time;
wishing to save us, the Creator appeared among his works.
He who shaped Adam's form inexplicably became Adam,
a mystery beyond understanding and reason.

Without changing, the Word became flesh and remained 5
the Word, just as he was, undivided from the Father.
