Christ became obedient for us unto death: even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath exalted Him, and had given Him a name which is above every name.
Alleluia, alleluia. Sweet the wood, sweet the nails, sweet the load that hangs thereon: for thou alone, O holy Cross, wast worthy to bear the King and Lord of heaven. Alleluia.
(Phil. 2:8-9 – Gradual of the Traditional Latin Mass)
