Clean Tuesday, 2017: Grant Me Tears

Orthodox Quotes from Great Compline: "Grant Me Tears, O God" | Orthodox and Vegan

Grant me tears, O God, as once to the sinning woman of old; and graciously vouchsafe that I may wash Thy feet which delivered me from the path of straying, and that I may offer unto Thee an ointment of sweet fragrance, even a pure life, fashioned by my repentance. And so shall I, also, hear Thy voice which I long for, saying: Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

-Troparia in the Plagal Fourth Mode, as chanted in Great Compline on Tuesday and Thursday Evenings
