Great and Holy Monday
For He comes of His goodness to suffer:
He who holds all things in his hand
Consents to be hung upon the wood
In order to save mankind.
How have you been seen in the flesh?
How have you been slain by lawless men,
Condemning our condemnation by your sufferings?
Therefore with one voice, O Word,
We ascribe glory, dominion and praise to your power!
Kathisma, Tone 1
