Holy Friday Matins - The 12 Passion Gospels 2016

Thou wast crucified for my sake, in order to pour forth forgiveness for me.

Thy side was pierced so that streams of life might flow for me.

Thy hands were transfixed by nails so that, convinced of the height of Thy power by the depth of Thy sufferings, I might cry out to Thee,

"O Christ, Thou giver of life: Glory to Thy Cross and to Thy passion, O Savior!"
