Christ is all…

Thou, Oh Christ, art the Kingdom of Heaven;

Thou, Oh Christ, art the kingdom of Heaven;

Thou, the land promised to the meek; Thou, the meadowland of paradise;

Thou, the hall of the celestial banquet;

Thou, the ineffable bridal chamber;

Thou, the table set for all,

Thou, the bread of life; Thou, the unheard of drink;

Thou, both the urn for the water and the life-giving water;

Thou, moreover, the inextinguishable lamp for each one of the saints;

Thou, the garment and the crown and the One Who bestoweth the crowns; Thou, the joy and rest;

Thou, the delight and glory; Thou, the gladness and mirth;

And Thy grace, the grace of the Spirit of all sanctity, will shine like the sun in all the saints;

And Thou, the unapproachable Sun, wilt shine in their midst; and all will shine brightly, according to the measure of their faith, their asceticism, their hope and their love, their purification, and their illumination by Thy Spirit.
