Prayer: Symeon the New Theologian

Come, O true light.
Come, O eternal life.
Come, O hidden mystery.
Come, O indescribable treasure.
Come, O inconceivable person.
Come, O endless delight.
Come, O unsetting light.
Come, O true and fervent expectation of all those who will be saved.
Come, O rising of those who lie down.
Come, O resurrection of the dead.
Come, O powerful one, who always creates and recreates and transforms by your will alone.
Come, O you who always remain immobile and at each moment move all.
Come, O eternal joy.
