GREAT SATURDAY.
THERE IS A GREAT SILENCE
ON EARTH TODAY,
A GREAT SILENCE AND STILLNESS,
SILENCE BECAUSE THE KING IS ASLEEP.
GOD HAS DIED IN THE FLESH
AND HELL TREMBLES
WITH FEAR

Today a tomb holds Him who holds the creation in the hollow of His hand; a stone covers Him who covered the heavens with glory. Life sleeps and hell trembles; and Adam is set free from his bonds. Glory to Thy dispensation, whereby Thou hast accom;ished all things, granting us an eternal Sabbath, Thy most holy Resurrection from the dead. Greek Hymn from Holy Saturday Morning Vigil.
