Stations of the Cross: Another Similarity

The prayer used most during the Stations of the Cross, aside from the Our Father and Hail Mary, is this:
V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee.
R. Because by Thy holy Cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.
This Saturday evening, Orthodox Christians of the Byzantine Rite will chant the following prayer as one of the Resurrectional stichera in tone 3 (from the Nassar book, p. 152) :
Thy glorified Cross O Christ, do we worship, and Thy Resurrection do we praise and glorify: for by Thy wounds we were all healed.
I just found the (quite) similar wording interesting.
