This moving Byzantine text is taken from the Service of the Twelve Gospels, celebrated at one o'clock on the morning of Good Friday in the Orthodox Church. The words are taken from Hosea, but given a Christian context by the Byzantine poet. The final sacred monosyllable 'OM', from the Hindu and Buddhist traditions, denotes The Eternal.
