Glory to God: Akathist of Thanksgiving

This Akathist, also called the Akathist of Thanksgiving, was composed by Protopresbyter Gregory Petrov in prison camp shortly before his death in 1940. His work is a comprehensive celebration of Gods glory as found throughout a broad examination of life and in the smallest things and most mundane circumstances. It is a celebration as understood perhaps best by one from whom all beauty was seemingly denied, a song of praise from amidst the most terrible sufferings. The title is taken from the words of St. John Chrysostom as he was dying in exile.
