1. Receive, O Lord, in Heaven above
Our prayers and supplications pure;
Give us a heart all full of love
And steady courage to endure.
2. Thy holy name our mouths confess,
Our tongues are harps to praise Thy grace;
Forgive our sins and wickedness,
Who in this vigil seek Thy face.
3. Let not our song become a sigh,
A wail of anguish and despair;
In lovingkindness, Lord most high,
Receive tonight our evening prayer.
4. O raise us in that day, that we
May sing, where all Thy saints adore,
Praise to Thy Father, and to Thee,
And to Thy Spirit, evermore.

Receive, O Lord, in heaven above. St. Ephraim of Edessa. [For a Vigil.] This version, by Professor F. C. Burkitt, was first published in The English Hymnal, 1906, No. 194. The original "Qabbel, Maran, ba'uth kullan" is in S. Ephraim's Opera (Rome, 1732-4G, vol. vi., p. 536), as Paraenesis lxvi. It was first printed in the Maronite Ferial Offices, and is also found among the Canticles at the end of Nestorian Psalters, as the hymn for the Nocturn of Thursday. See another translation in Dr. Burgess, 1853, p. 100 (p. 1109, ii.). [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.]
