HIDE TROPARION

Troparion of the Sunday, Tone IV —
When the women disciples of the Lord learned from the angel / the joyous message of Thy resurrection, / they cast away the ancestral curse / and elatedly told the Apostles: / Death is overthrown! / Christ God is risen, / granting the world great mercy!

Hymn to the Theotokos, Tone IV —
The mystery of all eternity, / unknown even by angels, / through you, O Theotokos, is revealed to those on earth: / God incarnate, by union without confusion. / He voluntarily accepted the cross for us, / by which He resurrected the first-created man, / saving our souls from death.

Kontakion of the Sunday, Tone IV —
My Savior and Redeemer as God rose from the tomb and delivered the earthborn from their chains. He has shattered the gates of hell, and as Master, He has risen on the third day!

The Placing of the Cincture (Sash) of the Most Holy Theotokos, Troparion, in Tone VIII —
O Ever-virgin Theotokos, protection of mankind:/ thou hast given to thy city a mighty legacy,/ the robe and cincture of thy most honored body,/ which have remained incorrupt through thy seedless birthgiving./ For in thee are nature and time renewed.// Wherefore, we beseech thee to grant peace to thy city and great mercy to our souls.

Kontakion, in Tone II, "In supplications..." —
Thy precious cincture, which encircled thy womb/ which was pleasing to God, O Theotokos,/ is the invincible might of thy city and an inexhaustible treasury of good things,// O only Ever-virgin who gavest birth.

Kontakion, in Tone IV, "Thou hast appeared today..." —
Today thy temple doth celebrate the deposition/ of thy precious cincture, O all-hymned one,/ and it earnestly crieth out to thee:/ Rejoice, O Virgin,// thou boast of Christians!

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.
