Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Lamentation.
The Lamentation is sung during the Easter season to praise the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. In essence, a glorious event is glorified, the victory over death for all mankind.
That is why the well-known Stases that it includes, such as "Life in (the) tomb", "All the generations" and "Oh, My Sweet Springtime" , which praise the Passion of Jesus Christ and his Works, show awe to His face and not just sorrow.
Passage from First Stasis "Life in (the) tomb"
In a grave they laid Thee,
yet, O Christ Thou art Life,
and the armies of the angels beheld amazed, giving glory that Thou chose to condescend.
How, O Life, dost Thou die?
How dost Thou dwell entombed,
Who hast slashed through all the bonds in the realm of death, and hast raised the dead in Hades from their graves.
