Hymn recited on Good Friday morning during the Adoration of the Cross. For Breviary use it is divided into two parts:

It was written by Venantius Fortunatus (530-609) and has approximately twenty-five translations; the one given is by J. Neale.

The eighth verse reads:

Faithful Cross! above all other,

One and only noble tree!

None in foliage, none in blossom,

None in fruit thy peers may be;

Sweetest Wood and Sweetest Iron!

Sweetest Weight is hung on thee.
