Ανεβη ο Θεος εν αλαλαγμω, Κυριος εν φωνη σαλπιγγος . Σωσον ημας, Z
Υιε Θεου, ο εν δοξη αναληφθεις αφ’’ημων εις τους ουρανους, ψαλλοντας σοι, Αλληλουια.
God has risen with a loud cry, the Lord, at the sound of the trumphet.
Save us, O Son of God, who rose from our midst to the heavens in glory, as we sing to You, Alleluia.

HYMNS FOR THE SMALL ENTRANCE.

APOLYTIKION OF THE RESURRECTION, PLAGAL OF SECOND TONE. Angelic powers were above Thy tomb and they that guarded Thee became as dead. And Mary stood by the grave seeking Thine immaculate Body. Thou hast despoiled Hades and was not tried thereby. Thou didst meet the Virgin and didst grant us life. O Thou Who didst arise from the dead, Lord, glory be to Thee.

APOLYTIKION OF THE ASCENSION, FOURTH TONE. Thou hast ascended in glory, O Christ our God and gladdened Thy disciples with the promise of the Holy Spirit and they were assured by the blessing that Thou art the Son of God and Redeemer of the world.

APOLYTIKION OF THE HOLY FATHERS. PLAGAL OF FOURTH TONE. Most glorified art Thou, O Christ our God, Who hast established our Fathers as luminous stars upon the earth and through them didst guide us all to the true Faith. O Most Merciful One, 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, PLAGAL OF SECOND TONE. When Thou hadst fulfilled Thy dispensation for our sakes, uniting things on earth with the Heavens, Thou didst ascend in glory, O Christ our God, departing not hence, but remaining inseparable from us and crying unto them that love thee: I am with you and no one can be against you.
