== Hymn of Kassiani text ==
O Lord God, the woman who had fallen into many sins,
having perceived Thy divinity
received the rank of ointment-bearer,
offering Thee spices before Thy burial
wailing and crying:
"Woe is me, for the love of adultery and sin
hath given me a dark and lightless night;
accept the fountains of my tears
O Thou Who drawest the waters the waters of the sea by the clouds
incline Thou to the sigh of my heart
O Thou Who didst bend the heavens
by Thine inapprehensible condescension;
I will kiss Thy pure feet
and I will wipe them with my tresses.
I will kiss Thy feet Whose tread
when it fell on the ears of Eve in Paradise
dismayed her so that she did hide herself because of fear;.who Who then shall examine the multitude of my sin
and the depth of Thy judgment?
Wherefore, O my Saviour
and the Deliverer of my soul
turn not away from Thy handmaiden
O Thou of boundless mercy".
