Troparion and Kontakion
Troparion, Tone 1: 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…”
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?
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.
Hymn to the Mother of God
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 mouths of infants and nursing babies* You have perfected praise.* Alleluia, alleluia,* alleluia.
