Today, the eve of Good Friday 2007.

Today is hung upon the Tree, He who suspended the Earth upon the waters.
A crown of thorns crowns Him, who is the King of Angels.
He is wrapped about with the purple of mockery, Who wrapped the heavens in clouds.
He was struck, Who freed Adam in the Jordan.
He was transfixed with nails, Who is the Bridegroom of the Church.
He was pierced with a spear, Who is the son of thPublishe virgin.
We worship Thy Passion, O Christ.
Show also Thy glorious Resurrection.

From the service held on Holy Thursday night in Orthodox Churches.
