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. The first canticle is the Song of Moses Exodus The second Hoos is Psalm , which thanks God for "His mercy [that] endures forever".
After some additional hymns, doxologies , and commemorations of the saints, the fourth Hoos is sung, which is Psalms , , and Tasbeha continues with the Psali of the day, glorifications of St. Mary that intricately explore the various symbols of the Virgin and Christ's incarnation present in the Old Testament , and the reading of the Gospel and Antiphonarium.
Tasbeha is often regarded by Copts as the closest time to Heaven on Earth  in that the community joins with the angels in the heavenly praise of God. Several online communities have been formed by Copts who truly love Tasbeha  and wish to discuss the church and praise of God.
