The '''[[Cherubim|Cherubic]] Hymn''' is the primary ''cherubikon''(Gr: χερουβικόν), or song of the [[angel]]s, sung during every [[Divine Liturgy]] of the year except with the exception of the liturgies of the Presanctified Gifts and those of [[Holy Week|Holy Thursday]] and [[Holy Saturday]]. It occurs after the [[Gospels|Gospel]] reading and is interrupted by the [[Great Entrance]].
