He who hung the earth…is hung upon the cross

Today He who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon the Cross.
He who is King of the angels is arrayed in a crown of thorns.
He who wraps the heaven in clouds is wrapped in the purple of mockery.
He who in Jordan set Adam free receives blows upon His face.
The bridegroom of the Church is transfixed with nails.
The Son of the Virgin is pierced with a spear.
We  worship Thy Passion, O Christ
Show us also Thy glorious Resurrection.
                  (from the Orthodox Service of the  Twelve Passion Gospels)
