Andrei Today he who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon a Tree


Fifteenth Antiphon from the Twelve Gospels Service - Matins for Great Friday

Chanted by Archbishop Job (Archbishop of Chicago) of blessed memory

Today he who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon a Tree, (x3)

He who is King of the Angels is arrayed in a crown of thorns.

He who wraps the heaven in clouds is wrapped in mocking purple.

He who freed Adam in the Jordan receives a blow on the face.

The Bridegroom of the Church is transfixed with nails.

The Son of the Virgin is pierced by a lance,.

We worship your Sufferings, O Christ (x3)

Show us also your glorious Resurrection.
