Today Upon The Tree

TODAY he hangeth upon a tree, he that hath hung the earth amid the waters. (Thrice)

A crown of thorns is set upon him, who is the King of the Angels.

A lying purple is cast about him, who doth clothe the heavens in cloud.

He is struck in the face, who in the Jordan set Adam free.

He is transfixed with nails, who is the Bridegroom of the Church.

He is mocked, who is the son of the Virgin.

We worship thy Passion, O Christ (Thrice).

Show unto us the very glory of thy resurrection.
