Thou art my sweetest Springtime…


Every generation
offers adoration
my Christ, at Thine entombment.

Thou art my sweetest Springtime,
My sweetest Son, I ask Thee,
“Where has Thy beauty faded?

- From the Lamentations of Holy Friday, third stasis


How, O Life, canst Thou die? In a grave how canst Thou dwell?
In a grave they laid Thee, O my Life and my Christ: Yet the Lord of Death hast Thou by Thy Death destroyed, and the world of Thee doth drink rich streams of life.
