Today is hung the tree He Who suspended the earth above the waters.
A crown of thorns crowns Him Who is King of the Angels is arrayed in .
He is wrapped in the purple of mockery Who wrapped the heaven with 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 the Virgin.
We worship Thy Passion, O Christ.
Show us also Thy glorious Resurrection.
