Tone 2. Eothinon 4.
HYMNS FOR THE SMALL ENTRANCE

APOLYTIKION OF THE MYRRH-BEARERS, SECOND TONE. When Thou didst descend unto death, O Life Immortal, then didst Thou slay hades with the lighting of Thy Divinity. And when Thou didst also raise the dead out of the nethermost depths, all the powers in the Heavens cried out: O Life-giver, Christ our God, glory be to Thee.

THE NOBLE JOSEPH, TAKING THINE IMMACULATE BODY DOWN FROM THE TREE AND HAVING WRAPPED IT IN PURE LINEN AND SPICES, LAID IT FOR BURIAL IN A NEW TOMB. BUT ON THE THIRD DAY THOU DIDST ARISE, O LORD, GRANTING GREAT MERCY TO THE WORLD.
UNTO THE MYRRH-BEARING WOMEN DID THE ANGEL CRY OUT AS HE STOOD BY THE GRAVE: MYRRH-OILS ARE MEET FOR THE DEAD, BUT CHRIST HATH PROVED TO BE A STRANGER TO CORRUPTION. BUT CRY OUT: THE LORD IS RISEN, GRANTING GREAT MERCY TO THE WORLD.

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 OF PASCHA, PLAGAL OF FOURTH TONE. THOUGH THOU DIDST DESCEND INTO THE GRAVE, O IMMORTAL ONE, YET DIDST THOU DESTROY THE POWER OF HADES AND DIDST ARISE AS VICTOR, O CHRIST GOD, CALLING TO THE MYRRH-BEARING WOMEN, REJOICE AND GIVING PEACE UNTO THINE APOSTLES, O THOU WHO DOST GRANT RESURRECTION TO THE FALLEN.
