He Shattered the Gates of Brass

Greek Orthodox Christian chant in Hagia Sophia.
Singer: Nikodemos Kabarnos

They have stripped me of my garments
And clothed me in a scarlet robe
They have set upon my head a crown of thorns
And given me a reed in my right hand that
I might dash them to pieces like a potters vessel.
Today hell cries out. Groaning.
I should not have accepted the man born of Mary.
He came and shattered the gates of brass.
As God, He raised the souls that I held captive.
Glory to Thy Cross and Resurrection, Lord.
