On the celebration of the 75th year of service to the Gospel by Hellenic College
Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, the release of this recording of
the superb hymnology of Holy Friday Orthros Service chanted by the Holy Cross
Romanos the Melodist Byzantine Choir is offered as a further means for each of
us to reconnect with the sacred purpose that unites all the activities of this valued
institution of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. May we each join our
voices with theirs in prayer and praise being filled with the Spirit, addressing one
another in psalms and hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to
the Lord... (Ephesians 5:18-19).
Archbishop Demetrios of America
Chair of Hellenic College Holy Cross Board of Trustees
ABOUT THIS RECORDING
ΛΙΓΑ ΛΟΓΙΑ ΓΙΑ ΤΟΝ ΑΝΑ ΧΕΙΡΑΣ ΨΗΦΙΑΚΟ ΔΙΣΚΟ
In April 2013, the Holy Cross Romanos the Melodist Byzantine Choir recorded this
CD in the Holy Cross Chapel in Brookline, Massachusetts, in celebration of the 75th
Anniversary of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. The choir consists
of students at Hellenic College and Holy Cross who are preparing to become
priests, deacons or lay leaders in the Greek Orthodox Church in the United States
and abroad. Most of the choir members received their training in Byzantine Music
at Holy Cross, part of whose mission is to be a center for in-depth study of the
sacred art of chanting.
The recording is structured as a condensed version of the Good Friday Orthros
service, which in contemporary practice is usually celebrated on Holy Thursday
evening and is known as the “Passion Service” as well as the “Service of the Twelve
Gospels.” To reflect the current practice in the Holy Cross Chapel, the recording
is bilingual.

Most of the musical scores for the texts performed in Greek were composed by
Petros the Peloponnesian (c. 1735 - 1778), widely acknowledged as the greatest
post-Byzantine Greek ecclesiastical composer. There is also one composition by
Konstantinos Vyzantios (1777-1862), Protopsaltis of the Great Church of Christ. The
settings of the texts in English were composed by John Michael Boyer, Protopsaltis
of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco and Holy Cross Master of
Divinity candidate.

Nicholas Kastanas, Assistant Adjunct Professor of Byzantine Music at Holy Cross
and Presiding Priest at St. Athanasios Greek Orthodox Church in Arlington, MA,
and Rev. Fr. Panteleimon Papadopoulos, Archdeacon to Archbishop Demetrios of
America and Director of the Archdiocesan School of Byzantine Music in New York
City.
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
In this CD the students of Hellenic College Holy Cross deliver a performance of
classical repertoire in a fashion that is faithful to the musical tradition of the
Ecumenical Patriarchate in Constantinople. In this way, they render the gracefilled hymnology of Great and Holy Friday accessible to American audiences, while
setting a standard for the performance of Holy Week hymnology by all cantors in
the English-speaking world. This makes a significant educational contribution to
the liturgical life of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese as well as other Orthodox
jurisdictions in America that wish to make use of Byzantine Music during the
services of Holy Week.
First and foremost, I would like to
thank His Eminence Archbishop
Demetrios of America for his
paternal love and blessing of
this project, as well as for his
tireless efforts at promoting and
disseminating the Psaltic Art
throughout the country.
I would also like to thank Rev. Fr.
Nicholas Triantafilou, President of
Hellenic College Holy Cross, Rev.
Dr. Fr. Thomas FitzGerald, former
Dean of Holy Cross, Dr. James
Skedros, Interim Dean of Holy
Cross, Dr. Demetrios Katos, Dean of
Hellenic College, Rev. Dr. Fr. James Katinas, Director of Institutional Advancement,
and the entire Holy Cross faculty for their vision and strong support.
Deep gratitude is due to Rev. Fr. Nicholas Kastanas, Archdeacon Panteleimon

When the glorious disciples were enlightened at the washing of the feet, then Judas the
ungodly was stricken and darkened with the love of money; and to lawless judges he
delivered you, the just judge. O lover of money, look upon him who for its sake hanged
himself; flee from the insatiable soul, which dared such things against the Teacher. O
you who are good to all, Lord, glory to you.

Rulers of the peoples were gathered together against the Lord and against his Christ.
Ἄρχοντες λαῶν συνήχθησαν κατὰ τοῦ Κυρίου καὶ κατὰ τοῦ Χριστοῦ αὐτοῦ.
They laid a lawless charge against me. Lord, Lord, do not abandon me.
Λόγον παράνομον κατέθεντο κατ' ἐμοῦ, Κύριε, Κύριε, μὴ ἐγκαταλίπῃς με.
Let us bring our senses pure to Christ, and as his friends let us sacrifice our souls
for him, and let us not, like Judas, be suffocated by the cares of life; but in our inner
chambers let us cry, ‘Our Father in heaven, deliver us from the evil one’.
Τὰς αἰσθήσεις ἡμῶν καθαρὰς τῷ Χριστῷ παραστήσωμεν, καὶ ὡς φίλοι αὐτοῦ, τὰς
ψυχὰς ἡμῶν θύσωμεν δι' αὐτόν, καὶ μὴ ταῖς μερίμναις τοῦ βίου, συμπνιγῶμεν ὡς ὁ
Ἰούδας· ἀλλ' ἐν τοῖς ταμείοις ἡμῶν κράξωμεν· Πάτερ ἡμῶν ὁ ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς, ἀπὸ

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, both now and for ever and to
the ages of ages. Amen.
A Virgin you gave birth, O unwedded, and a Virgin you remained, O Mother without
bridegroom, Mary Mother of God; implore Christ our God that we may be saved.
Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι, καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν

Ἀπαγγελία στίχου: Νικόλαος Τζέτζης
In return for the good things which you had done for the Hebrew race, O Christ,
they condemned you to be crucified, giving you vinegar and gall to drink. But repay
them, Lord, in accordance with their works, because they did not understand your
Ἀντὶ ἀγαθῶν ὧν ἐποίησας, Χριστέ, τῷ γένει τῶν Ἑβραίων, σταυρωθῆναί σε
κατεδίκασαν, ὄξος καὶ χολήν σε ποτίσαντες. Ἀλλὰ δὸς αὐτοῖς, Κύριε, κατὰ τὰ ἔργα
αὐτῶν, ὅτι οὐ συνῆκαν τὴν σὴν συγκατάβασιν.
condescension.
The Hebrew race was not content with your betrayal, O Christ, but they wagged their
heads, bringing scoffing and derision. But repay them, Lord, in accordance with their
works, because they meditated vain things against you.
Neither the earth as it quaked, nor the rocks as they split, neither the veil of the Temple,
nor the raising of the dead convinced the Jews. But repay them, Lord, in accordance
with their works, because they meditated vain things against you.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, both now and for ever and to
the ages of ages. Amen.
We know that God took flesh from you, Virgin Mother of God, alone pure, alone
blessed; and so, as we praise you without ceasing, we magnify you.
Ἐπὶ τῇ προδοσίᾳ οὐκ ἠρκέσθησαν Χριστὲ τὰ γένη τῶν Ἑβραίων, ἀλλ' ἐκίνουν τὰς
κεφαλὰς αὐτῶν, μυκτηρισμὸν καὶ χλεύην προσάγοντες. Ἀλλὰ δὸς αὐτοῖς Κύριε,
κατὰ τὰ ἔργα αὐτῶν, ὅτι κενὰ κατὰ σοῦ ἐμελέτησαν.
Οὔτε γῆ ὡς ἐσείσθη, οὔτε πέτραι ὡς ἐρράγησαν, Ἑβραίους ἔπεισαν, οὔτε τοῦ Ναοῦ
τὸ καταπέτασμα, οὔτε τῶν νεκρῶν ἡ ἀνάστασις. Ἀλλὰ δὸς αὐτοῖς Κύριε, κατὰ τὰ
ἔργα αὐτῶν, ὅτι κενὰ κατὰ σοῦ ἐμελέτησαν.
Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι, καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν
αἰώνων. Ἀμήν.

Ἀπαγγελία στίχου: Ἰωάννης Μιχαὴλ Μπόϋερ
Thus says the Lord to the Jews, ‘My people, what have I done to you? Or in what have I
wearied you? I gave light to your blind, I cleansed your lepers, I set upright a man lying
on a bed. My people, what have I done to you, and how have you repaid me? Instead
of the manna, gall; instead of the water, vinegar; instead of loving me, you have nailed
me to a Cross. I can endure no longer; I will call my nations, and they will glorify me,
with the Father and the Spirit; and I shall grant them eternal life’.
Τάδε λέγει Κύριος τοῖς Ἰουδαίοις· Λαός μου, τί ἐποίησά σοι, ἢ τί σοι παρηνώχλησα;
τοὺς τυφλούς σου ἐφώτισα, τοὺς λεπρούς σου ἐκαθάρισα, ἄνδρα ὄντα ἐπὶ κλίνης
ἠνωρθωσάμην. Λαός μου, τί ἐποίησά σοι, καὶ τί μοι ἀνταπέδωκας; ἀντὶ τοῦ μάννα
χολήν, ἀντὶ τοῦ ὕδατος ὄξος, ἀντὶ τοῦ ἀγαπᾶν με, Σταυρῷ με προσηλώσατε· οὐκέτι
στέγω λοιπόν, καλέσω μου τὰ ἔθνη, κᾀκεῖνα με δοξάσουσι, σὺν τῷ Πατρὶ καὶ
Πνεύματι, κᾀγὼ αὐτοῖς δωρήσομαι ζωὴν τὴν αἰώνιον.
Today the veil of the Temple is rent as a reproof to the transgressors; and the sun hides
its own rays, as it sees the Master crucified.
Σήμερον τοῦ Ναοῦ τὸ καταπέτασμα, εἰς ἔλεγχον ῥήγνυται τῶν παρανόμων· καὶ τὰς
ἰδίας ἀκτῖνας ὁ ἥλιος κρύπτει, Δεσπότην ὁρῶν σταυρούμενον.
Lawgivers of Israel, Jews and Pharisees, the choir of the Apostles cries out to you, ‘See a
Temple, which you have destroyed; see a Lamb, whom you have crucified. You handed
him over to a tomb, but by his own authority he has risen. Do not be deceived, O Jews,
for it is he who saved you in the sea, and fed you in the desert. He is the life and the
light and the peace of the world’.
Οἱ νομοθέται τοῦ Ἰσραήλ, Ἰουδαῖοι καὶ Φαρισαῖοι, ὁ χορὸς τῶν Ἀποστόλων βοᾷ πρὸς
ὑμᾶς. Ἴδε ναός, ὃν ὑμεῖς ἐλύσατε, ἴδε ἀμνός, ὃν ὑμεῖς ἐσταυρώσατε, τάφῳ παρεδώκατε, ἀλλ' ἐξουσίᾳ ἑαυτοῦ ἀνέστη. Μὴ πλανᾶσθε Ἰουδαῖοι· αὐτὸς γάρ ἐστιν ὁ ἐν
θαλάσσῃ σώσας, καὶ ἐν ἐρήμῳ θρέψας, αὐτός ἐστιν ἡ ζωὴ καὶ τὸ φῶς, καὶ ἡ εἰρήνη

But let us purify ourselves from all defilement, and sincerely beseech him, ‘Arise, Lord,

In your kingdom remember us, O Lord, when you come in your kingdom. Blessed are
the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Ἐν τῇ Βασιλείᾳ σου μνήσθητι ἡμῶν Κύριε, ὅταν ἔλθῃς ἐν τῇ Βασιλείᾳ σου. Μακάριοι οἱ πτωχοὶ τῷ πνεύματι, ὅτι αὐτῶν ἐστιν ἡ Βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Μακάριοι οἱ πενθοῦντες, ὅτι αὐτοὶ παρακληθήσονται.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Μακάριοι οἱ πρᾳεῖς, ὅτι αὐτοὶ κληρονομήσουσι τὴν γῆν.
Through a tree Adam became an exile from Paradise; but through the tree of the Cross
the Thief made Paradise his home: for the former through tasting set aside his Maker’s
commandment, while the latter, crucified with him, confessed the hidden God, as he
cried, ‘Remember me in your kingdom’.
Διὰ ξύλου ὁ Ἀδάμ, Παραδείσου γέγονεν ἄποικος, διὰ ξύλου δὲ σταυροῦ, ὁ Λῃστὴς
Παράδεισον ᾤκησεν. Ὁ μὲν γὰρ γευσάμενος ἐντολὴν ἠθέτησε τοῦ ποιήσαντος.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Μακάριοι οἱ καθαροί τῇ καρδίᾳ, ὅτι αὐτοὶ τὸν Θεὸν ὄψονται.
Your life-bearing side, O Lord, gushing up like a spring out of Eden’s midst, gives drink
to your Church, O Christ, as to a spiritual Paradise, dividing itself from there into four
Gospels as four river heads, it irrigates all the World, making the whole creation glad
and faithfully teaching the nations to worship your Kingdom.
Τὸν τοῦ νόμου Ποιητήν, ἐκ μαθητοῦ ὠνήσαντο ἄνομοι, καὶ ὡς παράνομον αὐτόν,

Μνήσθητι καὶ ἡμῶν Σωτήρ, ἐν τῇ Βασιλείᾳ σου.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
Δόξα Πατρὶ καὶ Υἱῷ καὶ Ἁγίῳ Πνεύματι.
Let all of us believers pray with one accord to glorify worthily the Father, the Son
and the Holy Spirit, a Unity of godhead existing in three Persons, remaining without
confusion, simple, undivided and unapproachable, through whom we are delivered
from the fire of eternal punishment.

Καὶ νῦν καὶ ἀεὶ καὶ εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων. Ἀμήν.
Your spotless Mother, O Christ God, who gave you birth in the flesh without human
seed, was truly Virgin and remained completely incorrupt after child-birth, and her we
now bring to you in intercession, Master most merciful, to loose, pardon and remit the
offences of those who ever cry, ‘Remember us also, O Saviour, in your kingdom’.

Ἐμμελὴς ἀπαγγελία: π. Νικόλαος Καστανᾶς
And that he would count us worthy to listen to the holy Gospel, let us pray to the Lord
God.
Καὶ ὑπὲρ τοῦ καταξιωθῆναι ἡμᾶς τῆς ἀκροάσεως τοῦ ἁγίου Εὐαγγελίου, Κύριον τὸν
Θεὸν ἡμῶν ἱκετεύσωμεν.
Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy.
Κύριε ἐλέησον, Κύριε ἐλέησον, Κύριε ἐλέησον.
Wisdom. Stand upright. Let us listen to the holy Gospel.
Σοφία. Ὀρθοί. Ἀκούσωμεν τοῦ ἁγίου Εὐαγγελίου.
Peace to all.
Εἰρήνη πᾶσι.
And to your spirit.
Καὶ τῷ πνεύματί σου.
The reading is from the holy Gospel according to Luke.
Ἐκ τοῦ κατὰ Λουκᾶν ἁγίου Εὐαγγελίου τὸ ἀνάγνωσμα.
Glory to you, O Lord, glory to you.
Δόξα σοι, Κύριε, δόξα σοι.
Let us attend.
Πρόσχωμεν.
At that time, two others also, who were criminals, were led away to be put to death
with him. And when they came to the place which is called The Skull, there they
crucified him and the criminals, one on the right and one on the left. And Jesus said,
"Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." And they cast lots to divide his
garments. And the people stood by, watching; but the rulers scoffed at him, saying,
"He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Christ of God, his Chosen One!" The
soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him vinegar and saying, "If you are
the King of the Jews, save yourself!" There was also an inscription over him, "This is
the King of the Jews." One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying,
"Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us! "But the other rebuked him, saying, "Do
you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And
we indeed justly; for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has
done nothing wrong." And he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when you come into
your kingdom." And he said to him, "Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in
Paradise." It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land
until the ninth hour, while the sun's light failed; and the curtain of the temple was torn
in two. Then Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, "Father, into your hands I commit my
spirit!" And having said this, he breathed his last. Now when the centurion saw what
had taken place, he praised God and said, "Certainly this man was innocent!" And all
the multitudes who assembled to see the sight, when they saw what had taken place,
returned home beating their breasts. And all his acquaintances and the women who
had followed him from Galilee stood at a distance and saw these things.
Glory to your forebearance, O Lord, glory to you.
Τῷ καιρῷ ἐκεῖνῳ, ἤγοντα σὺν τῷ Ἰησοῦ καὶ ἕτεροι δύο κακοῦργοι σὺν αὐτῷ

ἐσταύρωσαν αὐτὸν καὶ τοὺς κακούργους, ὃν μὲν ἐκ δεξιῶν, ὃν δὲ ἐξ ἀριστερῶν. Ὁ
δὲ Ἰησοῦς ἔλεγε· Πάτερ, ἄφες αὐτοῖς· οὐ γὰρ οἴδασι τί ποιοῦσι. Διαμεριζόμενοι
δὲ τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ ἔβαλον κλῆρον. Καὶ εἱστήκει ὁ λαὸς θεωρῶν. Ἐξεμυκτήριζον
δὲ καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες σὺν αὐτοῖς λέγοντες· Ἄλλους ἔσωσε, σωσάτω ἑαυτόν, εἰ οὗτός
ἐστιν ὁ Χριστὸς ὁ τοῦ Θεοῦ ὁ ἐκλεκτός. Ἐνέπαιζον δὲ αὐτῷ καὶ οἱ στρατιῶται
προσερχόμενοι καὶ ὄξος προσφέροντες αὐτῷ καὶ λέγοντες· Εἰ σὺ εἶ ὁ βασιλεὺς τῶν

Ἑλληνικοῖς καὶ Ρωμαϊκοῖς καὶ Ἑβραϊκοῖς· οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ βασιλεὺς τῶν Ἰουδαίων. Εἷς
δὲ τῶν κρεμασθέντων κακούργων ἐβλασφήμει αὐτὸν λέγων· Εἰ σὺ εἶ ὁ Χριστός,
σῶσον σεαυτὸν καὶ ἡμᾶς. Ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ ἕτερος ἐπετίμα αὐτῷ λέγων· Οὐδὲ
φοβῇ σὺ τὸν Θεόν, ὅτι ἐν τῷ αὐτῷ κρίματι εἶ; Καὶ ἡμεῖς μὲν δικαίως· ἄξια γὰρ ὧν
ἐπράξαμεν ἀπολαμβάνομεν· οὗτος δὲ οὐδὲν ἄτοπον ἔπραξε. Καὶ ἔλεγε τῷ Ἰησοῦ·
Μνήσθητί μου, Κύριε, ὅταν ἔλθῃς ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ σου. Καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ Ἰησοῦς·
Ἀμὴν λέγω σοι, σήμερον μετ’ ἐμοῦ ἔσῃ ἐν τῷ παραδείσῳ. Ἦν δὲ ὡσεὶ ὥρα ἕκτη
καὶ σκότος ἐγένετο ἐφ’ ὅλην τὴν γῆν ἕως ὥρας ἐνάτης, τοῦ ἡλίου ἐκλειπόντος, καὶ
ἐσχίσθη τὸ καταπέτασμα τοῦ ναοῦ μέσον· καὶ φωνήσας φωνῇ μεγάλῃ ὁ Ἰησοῦς εἶπε·
Πάτερ, εἰς χεῖράς σου παρατίθεμαι τὸ πνεῦμά μου· καὶ ταῦτα εἰπὼν ἐξέπνευσεν.
Ἰδὼν δὲ ὁ ἑκατόνταρχος τὸ γενόμενον ἐδόξασε τὸν Θεὸν λέγων· Ὄντως ὁ ἄνθρωπος
οὗτος δίκαιος ἦν. Καὶ πάντες οἱ συμπαραγενόμενοι ὄχλοι ἐπὶ τὴν θεωρίαν ταύτην,
θεωροῦντες τὰ γενόμενα, τύπτοντες ἑαυτῶν τὰ στήθη ὑπέστρεφον. Εἱστήκεισαν δὲ
πάντες οἱ γνωστοὶ αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ μακρόθεν, καὶ γυναῖκες αἱ συνακολουθήσασαι αὐτῷ
ἀπὸ τῆς Γαλιλαίας, ὁρῶσαι ταῦτα.
Δόξα τῇ μακροθυμίᾳ σου, Κύριε, δόξα σοι.

Come, let us all praise him who was crucified for us; for Mary looked upon him on the
Tree and said: ‘Though you endure the Cross, yet you are My Son and my God.’
Τὸν δι' ἡμᾶς Σταυρωθέντα, δεῦτε πάντες ὑμνήσωμεν· αὐτὸν γὰρ κατεῖδε Μαρία ἐπὶ

As she saw her own Lamb being dragged to the slaughter, Mary, the Ewe-lamb, worn
out with grief, followed with other women, crying out, ‘Where are you going, my child?
For whose sake are you completing the course so fast? Is there once again another
wedding in Cana? And are you hurrying there now to make wine for them from water?
Should I go with you, my child, or rather wait for you? Give me a word, O Word; do not
pass me by in silence, you who kept me pure, My Son and my God.’

outrages, the mockings, the purple cloak, the reed, the sponge, the vinegar, the nails,
the lance and, above all, the Cross and death, which he accepted willingly for our sake;
but also the saving confession on the cross of the Good Thief, crucified with him.

ἥλιος ἐσκοτίζετο, καὶ γῆς τὰ θεμέλια συνεταράττετο, τὰ πάντα συνέπασχον τῷ τὰ
πάντα κτίσαντι. Ὁ ἑκουσίως δι' ἡμᾶς ὑπομείνας, Κύριε δόξα σοι.
They parted my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.
Λαὸς δυσσεβὴς καὶ παράνομος, ἵνα τί μελετᾷ κενὰ; ἵνα τί τὴν ζωὴν τῶν ἁπάντων
θανάτῳ κατεδίκασε; Μέγα θαῦμα! ὅτι ὁ Κτίστης τοῦ κόσμου εἰς χεῖρας ἀνόμων
παραδίδοται, καὶ ἐπὶ ξύλου ἀνυψοῦται ὁ φιλάνθρωπος, ἵνα τοὺς ἐν ᾍδῃ δεσμώτας
ἐλευθερώσῃ κράζοντας· Μακρόθυμε Κύριε δόξα σοι.
Impious and lawless people, why do you meditate vain things? Why have you
condemned the life of all to death? O great marvel! That the Creator of the world, who
loves humankind, is betrayed into the hand of transgressors and lifted up on a tree, that
he may free the prisoners in Hell. Long-suffering Lord, glory to you.
Διεμερίσαντο τὰ ἱμάτιά μου ἑαυτοῖς, καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν ἱματισμόν μου ἔβαλον κλῆρον.
They gave me gall for food; and for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
Ἔδωκαν εἰς τὸ βρῶμά μου χολήν, καὶ εἰς τὴν δίψαν μου ἐπότισάν με ὄξος.
Today the blameless Virgin, when she saw you hanging on the Cross, lamenting with a
mother’s love, bitterly wounded in her heart, groaning in lamentation from the depth
of her soul, she struck her cheeks and tore her hair; and so beating her breast she cried
out with grief, ‘Woe is me, my divine Child! Woe is me, O light of the world! Why have
you left my sight, O Lamb of God?’ Therefore the armies of the Bodiless Powers were
seized with terror, as they said, ‘Lord, beyond understanding, glory to you.
Σήμερον σὲ θεωροῦσα ἡ ἄμεμπτος Παρθένος ἐν Σταυρῷ, Λόγε, ἀναρτώμενον,
ὀδυρομένη μητρῷα σπλάγχνα, ἐτέτρωτο τὴν καρδίαν πικρῶς, καὶ στενάζουσα
ὀδυνηρῶς ἐκ βάθους ψυχῆς, παρειὰς σὺν θριξὶ καταξαίνουσα, κατετρύχετο· διὸ
καὶ τὸ στῆθος τύπτουσα, ἀνέκραγε γοερῶς· Οἴμοι θεῖον Τέκνον! οἴμοι τὸ φῶς
τοῦ κόσμου! τί ἔδυς ἐξ ὀφθαλμῶν μου, ὁ Ἀμνὸς τοῦ Θεοῦ; Ὅθεν αἱ στρατιαὶ τῶν
Ἀσωμάτων τρόμῳ συνείχοντο λέγουσαι· Ἀκατάληπτε Κύριε δόξα σοι.
God is our king, he has wrought salvation in the midst of the earth.
Ὁ δὲ Θεὸς Βασιλεὺς ἡμῶν, πρὸ αἰώνων εἰργάσατο σωτηρίαν ἐν μέσῳ τῆς γῆς.
When she saw you, O Christ, the Creator and God of all, hanging on the Cross, she
who bore you without seed, cried bitterly: My Son, where has the beauty of your form
departed? I cannot bear to see you unjustly crucified; hasten then, arise, that I too may
see your resurrection from the dead on the third day.
Ἐπὶ ξύλου βλέπουσα, κρεμάμενον Χριστέ, σὲ τὸν πάντων Κτίστην καὶ Θεόν, ἡ σὲ
ἀσπόρως τεκοῦσα, ἐβόα πικρῶς· Υἱέ μου, ποῦ τὸ κάλλος ἔδυ τῆς μορφῆς σου; οὐ
φέρω καθορᾶν σε, ἀδίκως σταυρούμενον· σπεῦσον οὖν ἀνάστηθι, ὅπως ἴδω κᾀγώ,
σοῦ τὴν ἐκ νεκρῶν, τριήμερον ἐξανάστασιν.

Already the pen of sentence is being dipped in ink by unjust judges, and Jesus is being
convicted and condemned to the Cross; and creation, seeing its Lord on the Cross, is
suffering. But loving Lord, who for me suffer in your bodily nature, glory to you.
Ἤδη βάπτεται κάλαμος ἀποφάσεως παρὰ κριτῶν ἀδίκων, καὶ Ἰησοῦς δικάζεται καὶ
κατακρίνεται Σταυρῷ, καὶ πάσχει ἡ κτίσις ἐν Σταυρῷ καθορῶσα τὸν Κύριον. Ἀλλ' ὁ
φύσει σώματος δι' ἐμὲ πάσχων, ἀγαθὲ Κύριε δόξα σοι.

And that he would count us worthy to listen to the holy Gospel, let us pray to the Lord
our God.
Καὶ ὑπὲρ τοῦ καταξιωθῆναι ἡμᾶς τῆς ἀκροάσεως τοῦ ἁγίου Εὐαγγελίου, Κύριον τὸν

Next day, that is after the day of Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees
gathered before Pilate and said, "Sir, we remember how that impostor said, while he
was still alive, 'After three days I will rise again.' Therefore, order the sepulcher to be
made secure until the third day, lest his disciples go and steal him away, and tell the
people, 'He has risen from the dead,' and the last fraud will be worse than the first."
Pilate said to them, "You have a guard of soldiers; go, make it as secure as you can." So
they went and made the sepulcher secure by sealing the stone and setting a guard.
Τῇ ἐπαύριον, ἥτις ἐστὶ μετὰ τὴν παρασκευήν, συνήχθησαν οἱ ἀρχιερεῖς καὶ οἱ
Φαρισαῖοι πρὸς Πιλᾶτον λέγοντες· Κύριε, ἐμνήσθημεν ὅτι ἐκεῖνος ὁ πλάνος εἶπεν
ἔτι ζῶν, μετὰ τρεῖς ἡμέρας ἐγείρομαι. Κέλευσον οὖν ἀσφαλισθῆναι τὸν τάφον ἕως
τῆς τρίτης ἡμέρας, μήποτε ἐλθόντες οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ νυκτὸς κλέψωσιν αὐτὸν
καὶ εἴπωσι τῷ λαῷ, ἠγέρθη ἀπὸ τῶν νεκρῶν· καὶ ἔσται ἡ ἐσχάτη πλάνη χείρων
τῆς πρώτης. Ἔφη αὐτοῖς ὁ Πιλᾶτος· Ἔχετε κουστωδίαν· ὑπάγετε ἀσφαλίσασθε ὡς
οἴδατε. Οἱ δὲ πορευθέντες ἠσφαλίσαντο τὸν τάφον σφραγίσαντες τὸν λίθον μετὰ
τῆς κουστωδίας.
Glory to you, O Lord, glory to you.
Δόξα σοι, Κύριε, δόξα σοι.
