A Liturgy on the Incarnation

He whom none may touch is seized;

He who looses Adam from the curse is bound.

He who tries the hearts and inner thoughts of man is unjustly brought to trial;

He who closed the abyss is shut in prison.

He, before whom the powers of heaven stand trembling, stands before Pilate;

The Creator is struck by the hands of his creature.

He who comes to judge the living and the dead is condemned to the cross.

The destroyer of hell is enclosed in a tomb.

O thou who dost endure all these things in thy tender love,

Who has saved all men from the curse,

O long-suffering Lord, glory to thee.
