Resurrectional Tropar, Tone 5

Let us, the faithful, praise and worship the Word, Co-eternal with the Father and the Spirit, born for our salvation of the Virgin. In His Good Will He was lifted up on the Cross in the flesh to suffer death and to raise the dead by His glorious Resurrection.

Tropar of our church, Tone 4

Prophet and Forerunner of the coming of Christ, we who honor you with love can find no manner of praising you worthily. For the barrenness of one who bore you and the silence of your father have been ended by your being born of divine grace and you have proclaimed to the world the Incarnation of the Son of God.

Glory …
Kondak of our church, Tone 3

She who was previously barren now bears the Forerunner of Christ who is the fulfillment of every prophecy. For the prophets proclaimed beforehand that having laid hands on Him in the Jordan, he would be manifest as Prophet, Preacher and Forerunner of the Word of God.

Now and Ever …
Kondak from Triodion, Tone 4

Let us flee from the proud boasting of the Pharisee and learn the humility of the Publican. With groaning let us cry out to the Savior: Be merciful to us, for You alone are always ready to forgive.


Priest: Let us be attentive! Peace be with you all!

Reader: And with your spirit!

Deacon: Wisdom!

Reader: The Prokimen in Tone 5: You, O Lord, shall protect us and preserve us from this generation forever.

Choir: (repeats the prokimen)

Reader: Vs: O Lord, save me for there is no longer any righteous man.

Choir: (repeats the prokimen)

Reader: You, O Lord, shall protect us …

Choir: … and preserve us from this generation forever.


Deacon: Wisdom!

Reader: The reading is from the Second Letter of St. Paul to Timothy.

Deacon: Let us be attentive.

Reader: Son Timothy, you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

Priest: Peace be with you.

Reader: And with your spirit. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Alleluia Verses

Verse: Of Your mercies O Lord, I will sing forever; unto generation and generation I will proclaim Your Truth with my mouth.

Verse: You have said: Mercy will be established forever and My Truth will be prepared in the heavens.

Communion Hymn

Praise the Lord from the Heavens; praise Him in the Highest. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
