Holy and Great Friday

Chanting the Lamentations before the epitaphios on Holy and Great Friday

Ὡς φωτὸς λυχνία νῦν ἡ σὰρξ τοῦ Θεοῦ ὑπὸ γῆν ὡς ὑπὸ μόδιον κρύπτεται καὶ διώκει τὸν ἐν ᾅδῃ σκοτασμόν.

As a lamp of light hid beneath a bushel, now is God’s flesh hid beneath the earth, and it driveth away the darkness that is in hades.
