"The abysses are afraid before You O Lord..."

Christ raising Lazarus from the dead (source)
The abysses are afraid before You O Lord, the Source [of life], all the waters serve You, and the gates of hades tremble before You, O Christ, and their bars are broken through Your might, as You raised Lazarus from the dead through Your voice, O Almighty Savior, Who loves mankind.
-from Canon II of the Orthros on the Saturday of Lazarus
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord, Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
