HYMNS FOR THE SMALL ENTRANCE.

APOLYTIKION OF THE RESURRECTION, GRAVE TONE. AThou by Thy Cross didst abolish death; Thou didst open Paradise to the thief; Thou didst transform the myrrh-bearers’ weeping and didst bid Thine Apostles to preach that Thou art risen, O Christ our God, granting to the world Thy Great Mercy.

APOLYTIKION OF THE EPIPHANY, FIRST TONE. In the Jordan when Thou wast baptized, O Lord, the worship of the Trinity was made manifest; for the voice of the Father bare witness to Thee, calling Thee His Beloved Son. And the Spirit in the form of a dove confirmed the certainty of the word. O Christ our God, Who hast appeared and hast enlightened the world, glory be to Thee.

APOLYTIKION OF THE DORMITION, FIRST TONE. In giving birth, thou didst preserve thy virginity; in thy dormition, thou didst not forsake the world, O Theotokos. Thou wast translated unto life, since thou art the Mother of Life; and by thine intercessions dost thou redeem our souls from death.

APOLYTIKION OF THE CHAPEL, STS. RAPHAEL, NICHOLAS AND IRENE, FOURTH TONE. On Lesbos, ye strove in contest for the sake of Christ God; * ye also have hallowed her with the discovery of your relics, O blessed ones. * O God-bearer Raphael, with thee, we all honor * Nicholas the deacon and Irene the chaste virgin, * as our divine protectors, who now intercede with the Lord.

KONTAKION OF THE EPIPHANY, FOURTH TONE. Thou hast appeared on this day * unto the whole world * and Thy light, O Sovereign Lord, * is signed on us who sing Thy praise * and chant with knowledge: Thou hast now come, * Thou hast appeared, O Thou Light unapproachable.
