The Praise consists of various canticles directly from the Holy Bible , known in the Coptic Language as a "Hoos", as well as other praises that vary by day of the week. As its name suggests, the Midnight Praise typically happens late at night, preceding a liturgy in the morning. Outside the monasteries, this usually only happens on Saturday night followed by the Sunday liturgy, and often happens in the evening though not necessarily at midnight. In monasteries the Midnight praise usually occurs every night, often in the early hours before dawn. After praying the Agpeya , Tasbeha begins with the hymn known as Ten Theno which calls on God to awaken us from our slumber so that we may praise Him fittingly. Each canticle is sung directly from the Bible, followed by a "Lobsh" or explanation hymn.
