HYMNS FOR THE SMALL ENTRANCE.

APOLYTIKION OF THE RESURRECTION, THIRD TONE. Let the Heavens rejoice; let earthly things be glad; for the Lord hath wrought might with His arm, He hath trampled upon death by death. The first-born of the dead hath He become. From the belly of Hades hath He delivered us and hath granted great mercy to the world.

APOLYTIKION OF THE MARYTS, FOURTH TONE. Thy Martyrs, O Lord, in their courageous contest for Thee * received as the prize the crowns of incorruption and life from Thee, our immortal God. * For since they possessed Thy strength, they cast down the tyrants * and wholly destroyed the demons’ strengthless presumption. * O Christ God, by their prayers, save our souls, since Thou art merciful.

APOLYTIKION OF THE DORMITION THEOTOKOS, 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, SECOND TONE. O protection of Christians that cannot be put to shame, mediation unto the Creator most constant: O despise not the suppliant voices of those who have sinned; but be thou quick, O good one, to come unto our aid, who in faith cry unto thee: Hasten to intercession, and speed thou to make supplication, thou who dost ever protect, O Theotokos, them that honour thee.

THE HOLY MARTYRS MARCIAN AND MARTYRIUS THE NOTARIES.
These Martyrs were disciples of Saint Paul the Confessor. Martyrius was a sub-deacon, Marcian a chanter and reader. They were beheaded by the Arians in the year 346 A.D. Miracles were wrought at their tomb and demons were cast out; Saint John Chrysostom began the building of the church in their honour in Constantinople and it was completed by Patriarch Sisinius.
