Troparia and Kontakia
Troparion, Tone1: Assuring us before Your Passion of the general resurrection,* You raised Lazarus from the dead, o Christ God:* and so, like the children we also carry signs of victory* and cry to You, the conqueror of death:* Hosanna in the highest!* Blessed is He who comes* in the name of the Lord.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and for ever and ever. Amen.
Kontakion, Tone 2: Christ, the joy of all, the truth, the light,* the life, the resurrection of the universe,* in His goodness has revealed Himself to those on earth;* He Himself has become the pattern of the Resurrection,* granting divine forgiveness to all.
Instead of “Holy God,” we sing:
All you who have been baptized into Christ, you have put on Christ. Alleluia.
Prokeimenon, Tone 3
The Lord is my light and my Saviour;* whom shall I fear?
verse: The Lord is the protector of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 26:1)
Alleluia, Tone 5
verse: The Lord is King; He is robed in majesty.
verse: For He has established the world which shall not be shaken. (Psalm 92:1)
Hymn to the Mother of God
Irmos, Tone 8: Let us honour with glory the pure Mother of God;* though she received the Divine Fire within her womb she was not consumed.* With never ceasing hymns, O people,* we magnify her.
Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babies* You have perfected praise.* Alleluia, alleluia,* alleluia. (Psalm 8:3)
