You brought us out of nonexistence

"You brought us out of nonexistence into being, and again raised us up when we had fallen, and left nothing undone until you brought us to heaven and gave us your kingdom to come." 

~ St. John Chrysostom

I find it interesting that something that is so familiar to Orthodox Christians as part of the normal Sunday Liturgy should be attributed to a saint.

One can't say the same of Western liturgical texts, which aare designed by faceless committees.
