Good Friday

From the Holy Thursday service, and a beautiful reminder of what we as Christians observe this Holy Week in anticipation of Sunday. From The Mystery of Good Friday by Michael Hyatt:

"Today is suspended upon the Tree He who suspended the land upon the waters. (thrice)
A crown of thorns crowns Him who is the King of the angels.
He is wrapped about with the purple of of mockery, who wrapped the heavens with clouds.
He receives smitings—He who freed Adam in the Jordan.
He is transfixed with nails, who is the Son of the Virgin.
We worship Thy Passion, O Christ. (thrice)
Show us also Thy glorious Resurrection!”
