O God of spirits and of all flesh, You have trampled down death and have abolished the power of the devil, giving life to Your world. Give rest to the souls of Your departed servants, emperors, patriarchs, bishops, priests, deacons, hieromonks, deacon-monks, monks, and nuns, all pious Orthodox Christians who have fallen asleep in the hope of the resurrection unto life everlasting, from all the ends of the world, fathers, forebears, grandparents, great-grandparents, parents, spouses, children, siblings, and all our relatives. Give them rest in a place of light, in a place of repose, in a place of refreshment, where there is no pain, sorrow, and suffering. As a good and loving God, forgive every sin they have committed in thought, word or deed, for there is no one who lives and is sinless. You alone are without sin. Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Your word is truth.

Ἐλέησόν με, ὁ Θεός, κατὰ τὸ μέγα ἔλεός σου, καὶ κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῶν οἰκτιρμῶν σου ἐξάλειψον τὸ ἀνόμημά μου. Ἐπὶ πλεῖον πλῦνόν με ἀπὸ τῆς ἀνομίας μου, καὶ απὸ τῆς ἁμαρτίας μου καθάρισόν με. Ὅτι τὴν ἀνομίαν μου ἐγὼ γινώσκω, καὶ ἡ ἁμαρτία μου ἐνώπιόν μού ἐστι διὰ παντός. Σοὶ μόνῳ ἥμαρτον καὶ τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιόν σου ἐποίησα, ὅπως ἂν δικαιωθῇς ἐν τοῖς λόγοις σου, καὶ νικήσῃς ἐν τῷ κρίνεσθαί σε. Ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἐν ἀνομίαις συνελήφθην, καὶ ἐν ἁμαρτίαις ἐκίσσησέ με ἡ μήτηρ μου. Ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἀλήθειαν ἠγάπησας, τὰ ἄδηλα καὶ τὰ κρύφια τῆς σοφίας σου ἐδήλωσάς μοι. Ραντιεῖς με ὑσσώπῳ, καὶ καθαρισθήσομαι, πλυνεῖς με, καὶ ὑπὲρ χιόνα λευκανθήσομαι. Ἀκουτιεῖς μοι ἀγαλλίασιν καὶ εὐφροσύνην· ἀγαλλιάσονται ὀστέα τεταπεινωμένα. Ἀπόστρεψον τὸ πρόσωπόν σου ἀπὸ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν μου καὶ πάσας τὰς ἀνομίας μου ἐξάλειψον. Καρδίαν καθαρὰν κτίσον ἐν ἐμοί, ὁ Θεός, καὶ πνεῦμα εὐθὲς ἐγκαίνισον ἐν τοῖς ἐγκάτοις μου. Μὴ ἀποῤῥίψῃς με ἀπὸ τοῦ προσώπου σου καὶ το Πνεῦμά σου τὸ ἅγιον μὴ ἀντανέλῃς ἀπ' ἐμοῦ. Ἀπόδος μοι τὴν ἀγαλλίασιν τοῦ σωτηρίου σου καὶ πνεύματι ἡγεμονικῷ στήριξόν με. Διδάξω ἀνόμους τὰς ὁδούς σου, καὶ ἀσεβεῖς ἐπὶ σὲ ἐπιστρέψουσι. Ρῦσαί με ἐξ αἱμάτων, ὁ Θεός, ὁ Θεὸς τῆς σωτηρίας μου· ἀγαλλιάσεται ἡ γλῶσσά μου τὴν δικαιοσύνην σου. Κύριε, τὰ χείλη μου ἀνοίξεις, καὶ τὸ στόμα μου ἀναγγελεῖ τὴν αἴνεσίν σου. Ὅτι εἰ ἠθέλησας θυσίαν, ἔδωκα ἄν· ὁλοκαυτώματα οὐκ εὐδοκήσεις. Θυσία τῷ Θεῷ πνεῦμα συντετριμμένον, καρδίαν συντετριμμένην καὶ τεταπεινωμένην ὁ Θεὸς οὐκ ἐξουδενώσει. Ἀγάθυνον, Κύριε, ἐν τῇ εὐδοκίᾳ σου τὴν Σιών, καὶ οἰκοδομηθήτω τὰ τείχη Ἱερουσαλήμ. Τότε εὐδοκήσεις θυσίαν δικαιοσύνης, ἀναφορὰν καὶ ὁλοκαυτώματα. Τότε ἀνοίσουσιν ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριόν σου μόσχους.

Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your great mercy; and according to the abundance of Your compassion, blot out my transgression. Wash me thoroughly from my lawlessness and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my lawlessness, and my sin is always before me. Against You only have I sinned and done evil in Your sight; that You may be justified in Your words, and overcome when You are judged. For behold, I was conceived in transgressions, and in sins my mother bore me. Behold, You love truth; You showed me the unknown and secret things of Your wisdom. You shall sprinkle me with hyssop, and I will be cleansed; You shall wash me, and I will be made whiter than snow. You shall make me hear joy and gladness; my bones that were humbled shall greatly rejoice. Turn Your face from my sins, and blot out all my transgressions. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me with Your guiding Spirit. I will teach transgressors Your ways, and the ungodly shall turn back to You. Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation, and my tongue shall greatly rejoice in Your righteousness. O Lord, You shall open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praise. For if You desired sacrifice, I would give it; You will not be pleased with whole burnt offerings. A sacrifice to God is a broken spirit, a broken and humbled heart God will not despise. Do good, O Lord, in Your good pleasure to Zion, and let the walls of Jerusalem be built; then You will be pleased with a sacrifice of righteousness, with offerings and whole burnt offerings; then shall they offer young bulls on Your altar.

Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him according to the abundance of His greatness. [SAAS]

Δεῦτε πρὸ τέλους πάντες Ἀδελφοί, τὸν χοῦν ἡμῶν βλέποντες, καὶ τῆς φύσεως ἡμῶν τὸ ἀσθενές, καὶ τὴν εὐτέλειαν ἡμῶν, καὶ τὸ τέλος ὀψώμεθα, καὶ τὰ ὄργανα τοῦ σκεύους τῆς σαρκός, καὶ ὅτι κόνις ὁ ἄνθρωπος, βρῶμα σκωλήκων καὶ φθορά· ὅτι ξηρὰ τὰ ὀστᾶ ἡμῶν, ὅλως μὴ ἔχοντα πνοήν· τοὺς τάφους κατίδωμεν, ποῦ ἡ δόξα; ποῦ τὸ κάλλος τῆς μορφῆς; ποῦ ἡ εὔλαλος γλῶσσα; ποῦ ἡ ὀφρύς; ἢ ποῦ ὁ ὀφθαλμός; πάντα κόνις καὶ σκιά· διὸ φεῖσαι Σωτὴρ πάντων ἡμῶν.

O brethren, come before the end, and seeing that we are earth, and the fact that our nature is infirm, let us behold that we are vile and see what our end is like and the organs of our vessel made of flesh, and that every man is but dust, food for worms, and decay; that our bones are dry and have no breath. Let us look into the graves. Where is the glory? Where is the beauty of our form? Where is the tongue that spoke so well? Where is the eyebrow, and where is the eye? All is but dust and a shadow. Therefore, O Savior, spare us all. [SD]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν ἤχῳ σάλπιγγος, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν ψαλτηρίῳ καὶ κιθάρᾳ.

Praise Him with the sound of trumpet; praise Him with the harp and lyre. [SAAS]

Τί ἀπατᾶται ἄνθρωπος αὐχῶν, τί μάτην ταράττεται, ὁ πηλός, καὶ μετ' ὀλίγον ὁ αὐτός; τί οὐ λογίζεται ὁ χοῦς, ὅτι κόνις τὸ φύραμα, καὶ σαπρίας καὶ φθορᾶς ἀποβολή; Εἰ οὖν πηλὸς ἐσμὲν ἄνθρωποι, τί προστετήκαμεν τῇ γῆ; καὶ εἰ Χριστοῦ ἐσμὲν σύμφυτοι, τί οὐ προστρέχομεν αὐτῷ, καὶ ὅλην ἀφέμενοι τὴν ἐπίκηρον καὶ ῥέουσαν ζωήν, τῇ ζωῇ τῇ ἀφθάρτῳ, ἀκολουθοῦντες; ἥτις ἐστὶν ὁ Χριστός, ὁ φωτισμὸς τῶν ψυχῶν ἡμῶν.

Why is a man deceived into boasting, and why is he troubled for no purpose, since he was made of clay and shall soon return to it? Why not reflect on the fact that he was made from dust, and will end in rotten putrefaction? So if we humans are clay, why are we so attached to the earth? And if we are planted together with Christ, why not run to Him, and leave behind this mortal and fleeting life, and aspire rather to life incorruptible? Christ is this life, and the illumination of our souls. [SD]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν τυμπάνῳ καὶ χορῷ, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν χορδαῖς καὶ ὀργάνῳ.

Praise Him with timbrel and dance; praise Him with strings and flute. [SAAS]

Ὁ τῇ χειρί σου πλάσας τὸν Ἀδάμ, καὶ στήσας μεθόριον, ἀφθαρσίας, καὶ θνητότητος Σωτήρ, καὶ τῆς ἐν χάριτι ζωῆς, τῆς φθορᾶς ἀπαλλάξας τε, πρὸς τὴν πρώτην μεταθέμενος ζωήν, αὐτὸς τοὺς δούλους σου Δέσποτα, οὓς προσελάβου ἐξ ἡμῶν, μετὰ Δικαίων ἀνάπαυσον, καὶ ἐν χορῷ τῶν ἐκλεκτῶν, καὶ τούτων τὰ ὀνόματα, μεταγράψας ἐν βίβλῳ τῆς ζωῆς, ἐν φωνῇ Ἀρχαγγέλου, ἐξαναστήσας σάλπιγγος ἠχοῖ, καταξίωσον αὐτούς, τῆς οὐρανίου βασιλείας σου.

When You formed Adam with Your hand, O Savior, You set him between incorruption and mortality. Later, You made the life in grace to be free of corruption, and You moved him back to his former life. Now, O Master, to Your servants, whom You have taken from us to yourself, grant repose with the Righteous and in the choir of the elect; and record their names in the book of life; and raise them at the sound of the Archangel's trumpet; and count them worthy of Your heavenly kingdom. [SD]

Αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν κυμβάλοις εὐήχοις, αἰνεῖτε αὐτὸν ἐν κυμβάλοις ἀλαλαγμοῦ. Πᾶσα πνοὴ αἰνεσάτω τὸν Κύριον.

Praise Him with resounding cymbals; praise Him with triumphant cymbals; let everything that breathes praise the Lord. [SAAS]

Χριστὸς ἀνέστη λύσας τῶν δεσμῶν, Ἀδὰμ τὸν πρωτόπλαστον, καὶ τοῦ ᾍδου καταλύσας τὴν ἰσχύν, θαρσεῖτε πάντες οἱ νεκροί, ἐνεκρώθη ὁ θάνατος, ἐσκυλεύθη καὶ ὁ ᾍδης σὺν αὐτῷ, καὶ ὁ Χριστὸς ἐβασίλευσεν, ὁ σταυρωθεὶς καὶ ἀναστάς, αὐτὸς ἡμῖν ἐχαρίσατο, τὴν ἀφθαρσίαν τῆς σαρκός, αὐτὸς ἀνιστᾷ ἡμᾶς, καὶ δωρεῖται τὴν ἀνάστασιν ἡμῖν, καὶ τῆς δόξης ἐκείνης, μετ' εὐφροσύνης πάντας ἀξιοῖ, τοὺς ἐν πίστει ἀκλινεῖ, πεπιστευκότας θερμῶς ἐπ' αὐτῷ.

Christ arose, and from the bonds He loosed Adam, the first-created man, and He destroyed the power of Hades. Take courage, all you dead, for death has been put to death, and with it Hades has been despoiled. And Christ is reigning, even He who was crucified and rose. He has granted us the incorruption of our flesh; He raises us and grants us the resurrection; and to all of us who have ardently believed in Him with unwavering faith, He grants us that glory and joy.

Holy Lord, dwelling on high and beholding things below and, with your eye that observes all, keeping watch over the whole creation, to you we have bowed the neck of our soul and body, and we beseech you, O Holy of Holies: Stretch forth your invisible hand from your holy dwelling and bless us all. And, as you are good and love humankind, pardon us if we have sinned in anything, voluntarily or involuntarily, granting us your blessings both of this world and of the world above.

You are our God, who in wisdom creates and fills all things. O Christ, You sent Prophets to prophesy Your coming, and Apostles to proclaim Your mighty works. The former prophesied Your coming, and the latter illumined the nations through baptism. Martyrs suffered and attained what they longed for; and all these, together with Your Mother, intercede with You. O God, grant rest to the souls that You have taken to yourself, and also count us worthy of Your kingdom. You are the one who endured the Cross for me who am condemned, O my Redeemer and God. [SD]
