92. Troparia (from the Canon of the Resurrection): Ode VII

Then the earth in terror shook,
And the sun grew dark in wonder;
Then the Temple veil was torn,
And the rocks were rent asunder;--
For the Just One, God most glorious,
Died upon the Cross victorious.

O Most High, Whom heaven adores,
Thou wast born to us in weakness,
Bore the scourging and the wounds,
Died upon the Cross in meekness;--
Now o'er death we rise victorious,
By the power of God most glorious.
