"Being moved by compassion, O Christ..."

The Crucifixion of Christ (source)
Being moved by compassion, O Christ, You willingly come to suffer, O Benefactor, wishing to redeem us from the passions, and from the condemnation of Hades. Therefore we hymn Your precious Passion, and we glorify, O Savior, Your utter condescension.
-from the Compline for Holy Monday
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
