A Byzantine Lenten hymn describes the crucifixion this way: "The angel's fiery sword will no longer guard the gate of paradise, for the cross of the Lord has put it out wondrously. The power of death has been broken, the victory of Hades wiped out, and you, my savior, have stood up and called out to all those bound in hell: 'Come now, and enter into heaven!' "
