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 MARTYRS, 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, FIRST TONE. IIn 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, FOURTH TONE. The sacred treasury of God’s holy glory, * the greatly precious bridal chamber and Virgin, * the Saviour’s most pure temple, free of stain and undefiled, * into the House of the Lord * on this day is brought forward * and bringeth with herself the grace * of the Most Divine Spirit; * her do God’s Angels hymn with songs of praise, * for she is truly the heavenly tabernacle.
