💥Glory to You, O God, Glory to YouBy your death, you transform that which is mortal;By your burial, you transform that which is corruptible;By your divinity, you draw us up from the abyss.For, that which you assume, you make immortal;Your flesh, O Master, did not undergo corruption,And your soul did not remain in Hades where you were a stranger.
The most holy Temple is destroyed,But he raises up the fallen tabernacle;For he who dwells in the highest heaven, the New Adam,Goes down into Hades to raise up the first Adam.O youths, bless the Lord;Praise him, you priests;And let the whole nation exalt him forever…
💥…O marvelous wonder!I conceived you in a wondrous way, O my eternal Son,And I was happier than all women,For I did not suffer any pain.But today I see you lifeless, O my God,And a sword of sadness pierces me in a most cruel manner;But arise, O Lord, that I may extol you…
… O Mother, the earth covers me by my own will;But the guardians of Hades shudder to see me,Wearing the bloody garment of punishment;For, on the Cross, I have struck down my enemies;I shall arise as God, and you shall be exalted….
