Thou Heavenly, New Jerusalem

(Thou Heavenly, New Jerusalem) Hymn for Vespers and Matins on the feast of the dedication of a church. It is not known who the author was, but it was written in the 6th or 7th century. There are about 30 translations. The one given in Britt is by W. Irons; the fourth verse reads:

By many a salutary stroke,

By many a weary blow that broke,

Or polished with a workman's skill,

The stones that form that glorious pile,

They all are fitly framed to lie

In their appointed place on high.
