Hymn of the Cherubim

Let us who mystically represent the Cherubim and who sing the thrice-holy hymn to the life-creating Trinity, now lay aside all cares of this life, that we may receive the King of All, who comes invisibly upborne by the angelic host.  Alleluia.

~ Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom
