Glory … Kondak, Tone 3

Lord, as You once raised the paralytic, now through Your divine mercy raise my soul, paralyzed by sins and thoughtless actions. So that being saved I may chant to you: Glory to Your Might, Merciful Christ.

Now and Ever ... Paschal Kondak Tone 8

You descended into the tomb, Immortal One and destroyed the power of Death. In victory You rose, Christ God, proclaiming, "Rejoice!" to the Myrrh-bearing women. You granted peace to Your Apostles and bestowed resurrection on the fallen.


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

Reader: And with your spirit!

Deacon: Wisdom!

Reader: The Prokimen in Tone 1: Let Your mercy, Lord, be upon us as we have set our hope in You.

Reader: The reading is from the Acts of the Apostles.

Deacon: Let us be attentive.

Reader: Brethren, it came to pass, as Peter went through all parts of the country, that he also came down to the saints who dwelt in Lydda. There he found a certain man named Aeneas, who had been bedridden eight years and was paralyzed. And Peter said to him, "Aeneas, Jesus the Christ heals you. Arise and make your bed." Then he arose immediately. So all who dwelt at Lydda and Sharon saw him and turned to the Lord. At Joppa there was a certain disciple named Tabitha, which is translated Dorcas. This woman was full of good works and charitable deeds which she did. But it happened in those days that she became sick and died. When they had washed her, they laid her in an upper room. And since Lydda was near Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent two men to him, imploring him not to delay in coming to them. Then Peter arose and went with them. When he had come, they brought him to the upper room. And all the widows stood by him weeping, showing the tunics and garments which Dorcas had made while she was with them. But Peter put them all out, and knelt down and prayed. And turning to the body he said, "Tabitha, arise." And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up. Then he gave her his hand and lifted her up; and when he had called the saints and widows, he presented her alive. And it became known throughout all Joppa, and many believed on the Lord.

Priest: Peace be with you.

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

Verse: Lord, I will chant of Your mercies forever; with my mouth I will proclaim Your Truth from generation to generation.

Verse: For You have said: "My mercy is established to the ages; in Heaven You have confirmed Your faithfulness."

Instead of "It is right in truth"

The angel cried to the Lady Full of Grace: Rejoice, Pure Virgin. Again I say: Rejoice. Your Son is risen from His three days in the tomb. With Himself He has raised up all the dead: Rejoice, all peoples.

Irmos: Shine, Shine, O New Jerusalem, for the Glory of the Lord has shone on you. Exult now and be glad, O Zion and rejoice, Pure Birth-Giver of God, in the Resurrection of Your Son.

Instead of "We have seen the True light:"

Paschal Tropar: Christ is risen...

Instead of
"Glory to the Father and to the Son …"

Paschal Tropar: Christ is risen... (3 times)

Communion Verses

Receive the Body of Christ; taste the Fountain of Immortality. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Praise the Lord from the heavens, praise Him in the Highest. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
