Hymn from the Sunday of the Expulsion from Paradise

The sun hid its rays, the moon and stars were turned to blood, the mountains were afraid, the hills trembled, when Paradise was shut. Adam departed, beating his hands upon his face and saying: ‘I am fallen: merciful Lord, have mercy on me.’--At the Lity of Great Vespers

Sounds very similar to the hymns that we sing at the Vespers on Great and Holy Friday and again at the Orthros for Holy Saturday..
