Splendid Cross

From St Theodore of Studios:

How splendid the cross of Christ!
It brings life, not death;
light, not darkness;
paradise, not its loss.
It is the wood on which the Lord,
like a great warrior,
was wounded in hands and feet and side,
but thereby healed our wounds.
A tree had destroyed us,
a tree now brought us life.
