Lord, have mercy!

A vow of conversation

Though has clothed me in a body of clay, O Saviour, and breathed life into me, and I beheld Thy light; and Thou hast raised me from the dead by Thy command.

Thou has breathed life into my flesh, O Saviour, when there was no breathe within it; Thou has bound it fast with bones and sinews, and Thou has raised me from the dead by Thy command.

Thou hast broken open the all-devouring belly of hell and snatched me out, O Saviour, by Thy power; and thou has raised me from the dead by Thou command.

Canticle Six from the Canon of St Andrew of Crete for Lazarus Sunday.
