Apolytikion of the Church of the Resurrection

Thou hast revealed the earthly majesty of the dwelling place of the holy glory, O Lord, as the brilliance of the firmament on high. Make firm its foundation unto ages of ages, and receive our fervent supplications which are offered to thee, there in, through the intercessions of the Theotokos, O life and Resurrection of all.

How Can I Contribute to Holy Resurrection Church?

The First Hour (6:00 A.M.)

Through the prayers of our holy Fathers, O Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us.

Amen.

Glory to Thee, our God. Glory to Thee.

O Heavenly King, Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, who art everywhere present and fillest all things, the Treasury of good things and Giver of life: Come and abide in us and cleanse us from every stain and save our souls, O Good One.

Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy on us. (Thrice)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, both now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

All Holy Trinity, have mercy on us. Lord, cleanse us from our sins. Master, pardon our iniquities. Holy God, visit and heal our infirmities for Thy name's sake.

Lord have mercy. (Thrice)

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, both now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Our Father, Who art in the Heavens, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

O Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us.

Amen. Lord have mercy. Twelve Times

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, both now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Psalm 5

Unto my words give ear, O Lord; hear my cry. Attend unto the voice of my supplication, O my King and my God; for unto Thee will I pray, O Lord. In the morning Thou shalt hear my voice. In the morning shall I stand before Thee, and Thou shalt look upon me; for not a God that willest iniquity art Thou. He that worketh evil shall not dwell near Thee, nor shall transgressors abide before Thine eyes. Thou hast hated all them that work iniquity; Thou shalt destroy all them that speak a lie. A man that is bloody and deceitful shall the Lord abhor. But as for me, in the multitude of Thy mercy shall I go into Thy house; I shall worship toward Thy holy temple in fear of Thee. O Lord, guide me in the way of Thy righteousness; because of mine enemies, make straight my way before Thee, For in their mouth there is no truth; their heart is vain. Their throat is an open sepulcher, with their tongues have they spoken deceitfully; judge them, O God. Let them fall down on account of their own devisings; according to the multitude of their ungodliness, cast them out, for they have embittered Thee, O Lord. And let all them be glad that hope in Thee; they shall ever rejoice, and Thou shalt dwell among them. And all shall glory in Thee that love Thy name, for Thou shalt bless the righteous. O Lord, as with a shield of Thy good pleasure hast Thou crowned us.

Psalm 89

Lord, Thou hast been our refuge in generation and generation. Before the mountains came to be and the earth was formed and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting Thou art. Turn not man away unto lowliness; yea, Thou hast said: Turn back, ye sons of men. For a thousand years in Thine eyes, O Lord, are but as yesterday that is past, and as a watch in the night. Things of no account shall their years be; in the morning like grass shall man pass away. In the morning shall he bloom and pass away, in the evening shall he fall and grow withered and dry. For we have fainted away in Thy wrath, and in Thine anger have we been troubled. Thou hast set our iniquities before Thee; our lifespan is in the light of Thy countenance. For all our days are faded away, and in Thy wrath are we fainted away; our years have, like a spider, spun out their tale. As for the days of our years, in their span, they be threescore years and ten. And if we be in strength, mayhap fourscore years; and what is more than these is toil and travail. For mildness is come upon us, and we shall be chastened. Who knoweth the might of Thy wrath? And out of fear of Thee, who can recount Thine anger? So make Thy right hand known to me, and to them that in their heart are instructed in wisdom. Return, O Lord; how long? And be Thou entreated concerning Thy servants. We were filled in the morning with Thy mercy, O Lord, and we rejoiced and were glad. In all our days, let us be glad for the days wherein Thou didst humble us, for the years wherein we saw evils. And look upon Thy servants, and upon Thy works, and do Thou guide their sons. And let the brightness of the Lord our God be upon us, and the works of our hands do Thou guide aright upon us, yea, the works of our hands do Thou guide aright.

Psalm 100

Of mercy and judgment will I sing unto Thee, O Lord; I will chant and have understanding in a blameless path. When wilt Thou come unto me? I have walked in the innocence of my heart in the midst of my house. I have no unlawful thing before mine eyes; the workers of transgressions I have hated. A crooked heart hath not cleaved unto me; as for the wicked man who turned from me, I knew him not. Him that privily talked against his neighbor did I drive away from me. With him whose eye was proud and his heart insatiate, I did not eat. Mine eyes were upon the faithful of the land, that they might sit with me; the man that walked in the blameless path, he ministered unto me. The proud doer dwelt not in the midst of my house; the speaker of unjust things prospered not before mine eyes. In the morning I slew all the sinners of the land, utterly to destroy out of the city of the Lord all them that work iniquity.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, both now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia. Glory to Thee, O God. Thrice.

Lord, have mercy. Thrice.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, both now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Psalm 91

It is good to give praise unto the Lord, and chant unto Thy name, O Most High, To proclaim in the morning Thy mercy, and Thy truth by night, on a psaltery of ten strings, with an ode upon the harp. For Thou hast gladdened me, O Lord, by Thy deeds, and in the works of Thy hands will I rejoice. How great are Thy works, O Lord, exceeding deep are Thy thoughts. A mindless man shall not know it, nor shall a stupid man understand it. When the sinners spring up like grass, and all that work iniquity look loftily down, It is that they may be utterly destroyed unto ages of ages; but Thou art Most High for ever, O Lord. For lo, Thine enemies, O Lord, for lo, Thine enemies shall perish; and scattered shall be all they that work iniquity. And lifted high as that of a unicorn shall be my horn, and mine old age shall be strengthened with rich oil. And mine eye hath looked down upon mine enemies, and mine ear shall hear concerning the wicked that rise up against me. The righteous man shall flourish like a palm tree, and like a cedar in Lebanon shall he be multiplied. They that are planted in the house of the Lord, in the courts of our God they shall blossom forth. They shall still increase in a ripe old age, and happy shall they be to proclaim that upright is the Lord our God, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

Psalm 92

The Lord is King, He is clothed with majesty; the Lord is clothed with strength and He hath girt Himself. For He established the world which shall not be shaken. Thy throne is prepared of old; Thou art from everlasting. The rivers have lifted up, O Lord, the rivers have lifted up their voices. The rivers will lift up their waves, at the voices of many waters. Wonderful are the surgings of the sea, wonderful on high is the Lord. Thy testimonies are made very sure. Holiness becometh Thy house, O Lord, unto length of days.

Psalm 93

The Lord is the God of vengeances; the God of vengeances hath spoken openly. Be Thou exalted, O Thou that judgest the earth; render the proud their due. How long shall sinners, O Lord, how long shall sinners boast? How long shall they utter and speak unrighteousness, how long shall they speak, all they that work iniquity? Thy people, O Lord, have they brought low, and to Thine inheritance have they done hurt. Widow and orphan have they slain, and the proselyte have they murdered. And they said: The Lord shall not see it, nor will the God of Jacob perceive it. Understand then, ye mindless ones among the people; and ye fools, at length be wise. He that planted the ear, shall He not hear? Or He that formed the eye, doth He not perceive? He that chasteneth the heathen, shall He not rebuke? He that teacheth man knowledge? The Lord knoweth the thoughts of men, that they are vain. Blessed is the man whom Thou shalt chasten, O Lord; and out of Thy law shalt Thou instruct him, That Thou mayest give him rest from evil days, until a pit be dug for the sinner. For the Lord will not cast off His people, nor will He forsake His inheritance, Until righteousness return unto judgement, and all that are upright of heart be nigh thereto. Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Or who will stand up with me against the workers of iniquity? Unless the Lord had brought me help, my soul had well nigh sojourned in hades. Whenever I said: My foot hath slipped; Thy mercy, O Lord, brought help unto me. According to the multitude of my sorrows in my heart, Thy consolations brought gladness unto my soul. Let not the throne of iniquity have fellowship with Thee, which maketh mischief in the name of the law. They shall hunt down the soul of the righteous man, and the innocent blood shall they condemn. Yea, the Lord is become my refuge, and my God the helper of my hope. And the Lord shall give back to them their own iniquity, and according to their wickedness the Lord God shall make them to be seen no more.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, both now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia. Glory to Thee, O God. Thrice.

Lord, have mercy. Thrice.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. Both now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Psalm 94

Come let us rejoice in the Lord, let us shout with jubilation unto God our Saviour. Let us come before His countenance with thanksgiving, and with psalms let us shout in jubilation unto Him. For the Lord is a great God and a great king over all the earth. For in His hand are the ends of the earth, and the heights of the mountains are His. For the sea is His, and He made it; and the dry land His hands have fashioned. O come, let us worship and fall down before Him, and let us weep before the Lord Who made us. For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand. Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness. For your fathers tempted Me, they proved Me and saw My works. Forty years long was I grieved with that generation, and I said: They do always err in their hearts. And they have not known My ways; so I sware in Mine anger: They shall not enter into My rest.

Psalm 95

O sing unto the Lord a new song, sing unto the Lord all the earth. Sing unto the Lord, bless His name; proclaim from day to day the good tidings of His salvation. Declare among the nations His glory, and among all peoples His wonders. For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; He is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are demons, but the Lord made the heavens. Praise and beauty are before Him, holiness and majesty are in His sanctuary. Bring to the Lord, ye kindreds of the nations, bring to the Lord glory and honour; bring to the Lord the glory due unto His name. Bring sacrifices, and go into His courts; worship the Lord in His holy court. Let the earth be shaken at His presence; say among the nations that the Lord is king. For He hath established the world which shall not be shaken; He shall judge the people in uprightness. Let the heavens be glad and let the earth rejoice; let the sea be shaken, and the fullness thereof. The plains shall be joyful, and all the things therein. Then shall all the trees of the forest rejoice at the presence of the Lord, for He cometh, for He cometh to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with His truth.

Psalm 96

The Lord is king, let the earth rejoice; let the many islands be glad. Clouds and darkness are round about Him; righteousness and judgement are the establishment of His throne. Fire shall go before Him, and shall burn up His enemies round about. His lightnings have shone forth throughout the world; the earth saw it and was shaken. The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of all the earth. The heavens declared His righteousness, and all the peoples saw His glory. Let all be put to shame that worship graven things, that boast themselves of their idols. Worship Him, all ye His angels; Sion heard and was glad, And the daughters of Judea rejoiced because of Thy judgements, O Lord. For Thou art Lord Most High over all the earth, Thou art exalted far above all the gods. Ye that love the Lord, see to it that ye hate evil. The Lord preserveth the souls of His saints; from the hand of the sinner shall He deliver them. A light hath dawned forth for the righteous man, and gladness for the upright of heart. Be glad in the Lord, O ye righteous, and give thanks for the remembrance of His holiness.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, both now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia. Glory to Thee, O God. Thrice.

Lord, have mercy. Thrice.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. Both now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Psalm 97

O sing unto the Lord a new song, for the Lord hath wrought wondrous things. His right hand and His holy arm have wrought salvation for Him. The Lord hath made known His salvation, in the sight of the nations hath He revealed His righteousness. He hath remembered His mercy to Jacob, and His truth to the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. Shout with jubilation unto the Lord, all the earth; sing and rejoice and chant psalms. Chant ye unto the Lord with a harp, with the harp and with the voice of a psalm, with trumpets of metal, and with a voice of a trumpet of horn. Shout with jubilation before the Lord our King; let the sea be shaken and the fullness thereof, the world and all they that dwell therein. The rivers shall clap their hands together; the mountains shall rejoice at the presence of the Lord, for He cometh; yea, He is come to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with uprightness.

Psalm 98

The Lord is king, let the peoples rage; He sitteth on the cherubim, let the earth be shaken. The Lord is great in Sion, and He is high above all peoples. Let them confess Thy great name, for it is terrible and holy; and the king's honour loveth judgement. Thou hast prepared uprightness; judgement and righteousness in Jacob hast Thou wrought. Exalt ye the Lord our God, and worship the footstool of His feet; for He is holy. Moses and Aaron among His priests, and Samuel among them that call upon His name, They called upon the Lord, and He hearkened unto them; in a pillar of cloud He spake unto them. For they kept His testimonies and His ordinances which He gave them. O Lord our God, Thou didst hearken unto them; O God, Thou wast fain to be entreated for them, and yet tookest vengeance on all their devices. Exalt ye the Lord our God, and worship at His holy mountain; for holy is the Lord our God.

Psalm 99

Shout with jubilation unto God, all the earth; serve the Lord with gladness. Come before His presence with rejoicing. Know ye that the Lord Himself is our God; it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, into His courts with hymns; give thanks unto Him. Praise His name, for the Lord is good; His mercy endureth for ever, and His truth unto generation and generation.

Psalm 100

Of mercy and judgement will I sing unto Thee, O Lord; I will chant and have understanding in a blameless path. When wilt Thou come unto me? I have walked in the innocence of my heart in the midst of my house. I have no unlawful thing before mine eyes; the workers of transgressions I have hated. A crooked heart hath not cleaved unto me; as for the wicked man who turned from me, I knew him not. Him that privily talked against his neighbour did I drive away from me.

Mine eyes were upon the faithful of the land, that they might sit with me; the man that walked in the blameless path, he ministered unto me. The proud doer dwelt not in the midst of my house; the speaker of unjust things prospered not before mine eyes. In the morning I slew all the sinners of the land, utterly to destroy out of the city of the Lord all them that work iniquity.

Troparion:

The memory of the just is celebrated with hymns of praise, but the Lord's testimony is enough for thee, O Forerunner, for thou wast shown to be more wonderful than the Prophets since thou wast granted to baptize in the running waters Him Whom thou didst proclaim. Then having endured great suffering for the Truth, thou didst rejoice to bring, even to those in hell, the good tidings that God Who had appeared in the flesh takes away the sin of the world and grants us the great mercy.

Both now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Virgin, for thou hast remained incorrupt. Pure Mother, for thou hast held in thy holy embrace a Son, who is God of all. Beseech thou Him to save our souls. My steps do Thou direct according to Thy saying, and so let no iniquity have dominion over me. My steps do Thou direct according to Thy saying, and so let no iniquity have dominion over me. Deliver me from the false accusations of men, and I will keep Thy commandments. Deliver me from the false accusations of men, and I will keep Thy commandments.

Kontakion:

With hearts and mouths, let us continually magnify the glorious Mother of God, more holy than the angels, confessing her to be the Theotokos, who did, in very truth, bring forth God incarnate and who unceasingly doth intercede for our souls.

Lord, have mercy. Forty times.

Thou who at all times and at every hour, both in heaven and on earth, art worshipped and glorified, O Christ God, long-suffering, plenteous in mercy and compassion, who lovest the just and showest mercy to sinners; who callest all men to salvation through the promise of good things to come: Do Thou, the same Lord, receive also our supplications at this present hour, and direct our lives according to Thy commandments. Sanctify our souls, purify our bodies, set aright our minds, cleanse our thoughts, and deliver us from all calamity, wrath, and distress. Compass us round about with Thy holy angels; that guided and guarded by their hosts, we may attain unto the unity of the faith, and unto the comprehension of Thine ineffable glory: For blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Lord, have mercy. Thrice.

Through the prayers of our holy fathers, O Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us.

Amen.
