Liturgy of the Sunday
That night had been known in advance to our ancestors, so that, well knowing him in whom they had put their trust, they would be sure of his promises.
Your people thus were waiting both for the rescue of the upright and for the ruin of the enemy;
for by the very vengeance that you exacted on our adversaries, you glorified us by calling us to you.
So the holy children of the good offered sacrifice in secret and with one accord enacted this holy law: that the holy ones should share good things and dangers alike; and forthwith they chanted the hymns of the ancestors.
