Hymns of the Eastern Church, by J.M. Neale, [1884] by S. Andrew of Crete. The following Stanzas are from the Triodion sung at Compline on Palm Sunday: which has the same name among the Greeks as among ourselves. Ἰησοῦς ὑπὲρ τοῦ κόσμου. Jesus, hastening for the world to suffer,   Enters in, Jerusalem, to thee: With His Twelve He goeth forth to offer   That free sacrifice He came to be. They that follow Him with true affection   Stand prepared to suffer for His Name: Be we ready then for man's rejection,   For the mockery, the reproach, the shame. Now, in sorrow, sorrow finds its healing:   In the form wherein our father fell, Christ appears, those quick’ning Wounds revealing,   Which shall save from sin and death and hell. Now, Judæa, call thy Priesthood nigh thee!   Now for Deicide prepare thy hands! Lo I thy Monarch, meek and gentle by thee!!   Lo! the Lamb and Shepherd in thee stands! To thy Monarch, Salem, give glad greeting!   Willingly He hastens to be slain For the multitude His entrance meeting   With their false Hosanna's ceaseless strain.        "Blest is He That comes," they cry,        "On the Cross for man to die!"
