Glory to Thy Long Suffering O Lord!
Today He who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon the Cross. He who is King of the angels is arrayed in a crown
of thorns. He who wraps the heaven in clouds is wrapped in purple of mockery. He who in Jordan set Adam free receives
blows upon His face. The Bridegroom of the Church is transfixed with nails. The Son of the Virgin is pierced with a spear.
We venerate Thy Passion, O Christ. We venerate Thy Passion, O Christ. We venerate Thy Passion, O Christ. Show us also
Thy glorious Resurrection. Good Friday Matins (Reading of the 12 Gospels)
