This is the translation of the Latin Chant, Ecca lignum crucis ( Behold the Wood of Cross), for the veneration of the Cross on Good Friday. As in Latin tradition, the chant is sung three times, each time in a higher pitch register, However the roles are differently distributed. In the Latin rite the celebrant sings the first two of the three phrases, and the congregation sings the third ('come lets worship'). In the Syriac rite the celebrant, the congregation, and the deacon sing each phrase consecutively. The Syriac chant has the same melody for all three phrases, unlike its Latin counterpart.
