St. Seraphim of Sarov Orthodox Church


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 in 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.

Show us also Thy glorious resurrection.

from Holy Friday Matins
