Today, He hangs upon the Cross


Holy Thursday


The Passion 

Lamentation in Arabic

by Fadi El-Hage

Hattip: NOCTOC



Today He who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon the Cross.
Today He who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon the Cross.
Today He who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon the Cross.


He who is King of the angels is arrayed in a crown of thorns.

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 Bridegroom of the Church 
is affixed to the cross with nails.


The Son of the Virgin is pierced by a spear



We venerate Thy Passion, O Christ.


We venerate Thy Passion, O Christ.


We venerate Thy Passion, O Christ.


Show us also Thy glorious Resurrection.

  2. You will be able to read in English the words that are being lamented in Arabic - I hope you can hear the Gcast.

    Fadi's interpretation is enigmatic and beautiful!

    It placed me IN Jerusalem and helped me this morning think about how lamentations would have sounded by the women as they brought him down from the cross, wrapped Him.

    Yes, tears streamed down my face ...

  3. Yes... it is very good audio of Fadi. Chanting it while listening to the music is cool.

    Christ is RISEN!
    Truly He has RISEN...
