God on the Cross in Eastern Liturgy

Today He who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon the Cross . . . . 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 Son of the Virgin is pierced with a spear. We venerate Thy Passion, O Christ. Show us also Thy glorious Resurrection.
