HIDE TROPARION

Troparion of the Sunday, Tone VIII —
Thou didst descend from on high, O Merciful One! / Thou didst accept the three-day burial to free us from our sufferings! / O Lord, our Life and Resurrection: glory to Thee!

Hymn to the Theotokos, Tone VIII —
For our sake Thou wast born of the Virgin / and did endure crucifixion, O Good One, / destroying death by death. / Revealing the resurrection as God, / do not despise the work of Thy hand. / Reveal Thy love for man, O merciful One, / and accept the Theotokos praying for us, / and save Thy despairing people, O Savior.

Kontakion of the Sunday, Tone VIII —
By rising from the tomb, Thou didst raise the dead and resurrect Adam. / Eve exults in Thy Resurrection, / and the world celebrates Thy rising from the dead, O greatly Merciful One!

Troparion of Righteous David, Joseph and James. Tone II —
Proclaim the wonder, O Joseph, / to David, the ancestor of God: / you saw a Virgin great with Child, / you gave glory with the shepherds, / you worshipped with the Magi, / you received the news from the angel. / Pray to Christ God to save our souls!

Kontakion of Righteous David, Joseph and James. Tone III —
Today godly David is filled with joy; / Joseph and James offer praise. / The glorious crown of their kinship with Christ fills them with great joy. / They sing praises to the One ineffably born on earth, / and they cry out: "O Compassionate One, save those who honor You!"

Troparion of Anysia & Melania, in Tone IV —
Having righteously accomplished the path of virtue,/ thou wast betrothed to God the Word, O revered Anysia, and thou didst contest rejoicingly. And as one made illustrious by the light of dispassion, O Melania, thou didst shine forth with the rays of virtue upon the world. And now ye both beseech Christ the Lord that He be gracious unto us.

Kontakion of Anysia & Melania, in Tone III —
Like a lamp of two lights, verily ye shine upon the Church of Christ with a mystical radiance. O Anysia, thou didst bring forth fruit a hundredfold in martyric contest, and thou, O Melania, didst shine forth in asceticism. Wherefore, ye were deemed worthy of the incorruptible and blessed life.

Tipikon Signs

– vigil for great feasts; a more festive service where all of the unfixed hymns are dedicated to the feast.
– "vigil" to a certain saint when All Night vigil is celebrated. The order of the service is similar to a “Polyeleos” (magnification) service, in that small vespers, great vespers and matins are combined (from this comes the vigil) and that there is the blessing of breads and the anointing with oil at the end of matins.
– "cross", "Polyeleos", "with the Polyeleos", "Polyeleos service", that is the type of service during which the "Polyeleos" (Praise/Magnification) is sung during matins (the majestic singing of the 134 and 135 psalms with verses); in addition, during this service there is a reading from the Gospel, the prokeimenon, gradual antiphons, the canon with 8 troparions, the praises and Great Doxology are sung, and during vespers "Blessed is the man" is sung (first "Glory" of the 1st kathisma), there is an entrance, Old Testament readings (parameia) and during lityia all of the verses may be sung to the saint.
– "doxology", "with doxology" during this service to the saint it is proper to sing the Great Doxology at the end of matins (in services of a lower rank, the doxology is read), also at this service are sung several Sunday Theotokions, sedalions after the kathisma (psaltery reading) to the saint, the katavasia during the canon, also at the end of matins are sung the praise verses, the Great Doxology, and the entire ending of matins follows the order of a feast.
– "six verse", "up to six"; all six stikhera of "Lord, I cry" are sung to the saint, there is a stikhera for "Glory" of the Apotischa for both vespers and matins; troparion to the saint, and the canon of matins is sung to the saint in six troparions.
, , no sign – "without a sign"; the most ordinary, daily service to a saint, to whom it is customary to sing only three stikhera at "Lord I cry" and the canon of matins in four troparions. There may not be a troparion to the saint.
