HYMNS FOR THE SMALL ENTRANCE.

APOLYTIKION OF THE RESURRECTION, GRAVE TONE. Thou 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 TRANSFIGURATION, GRAVE TONE. Thou wast transfigured on the mountain, O Christ our God, showing to Thy disciples Thy glory as each one could endure. Shine forth Thou on us, who are sinners all, Thy light ever-unending, through the prayers of the Theotokos. Light-bestower, glory 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.

KONTATION, GRAVE TONE. On the mount Thou wast transfigured, and Thy disciples, as much as they could bear, beheld Thy glory, O Christ our God; that when they should see Thee crucified, they would know Thy Passion to be willing, and would preach to the world that Thou, in truth, are the effulgence of the Father.
