"On seeing Thine unjust slaughter O Christ, the pure Virgin cried in grief, 'O most sweet Child, how is it that Thou diest lawlessly. How is it that Thou Who, has suspended all the earth upon the floods of waters, art now Thyself, suspended from the Tree. O most merciful Benefactor, do not leave me, Thy Mother and handmaid, alone.'" I love this one. Anytime I want to feel close to Christ or the Mother of God, all year long, I chant this hymn in Byzantine melody...to remind myself what both Christ and His Mother went through for us to have heaven.....and then of course, Christ is Risen!
