Great & Holy Friday

This morning we participated in the Service of Royal Hours. The following is a hymn we sang as we knelt before Jesus on the cross:

 

“Today he who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon the tree.

Today he who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon the tree.

Today he who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon the tree.


“The King of the Angels is decked with a crown of thorns.

He who wraps the heavens with clouds is wrapped in the purple of mockery.

He who freed Adam in the Jordan is slapped on the face.

The Bridegroom of the Church is affixed to the cross with nails.

The son of the Virgin is pierced by a spear.


“We worship Thy passion, O Christ.

We worship Thy passion, O Christ.

We worship Thy passion, O Christ.

“Show us also Thy glorious resurrection!”
