Ἀνάστασιν Χριστοῦ θεασάμενοι, προσκυνήσωμεν Ἅγιον Κύριον Ἰησοῦν, τὸν μόνον ἀναμάρτητον. Τὸν Σταυρόν σου, Χριστέ, προσκυνοῦμεν καὶ τὴν ἁγίαν σου ἀνάστασιν ὑμνοῦμεν καὶ δοξάζομεν· σὺ γὰρ εἶ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, ἐκτός σου ἄλλον οὐκ οἴδαμεν, τὸ ὄνομά σου ὀνομάζομεν. Δεῦτε πάντες οἱ πιστοί, προσκυνήσωμεν τὴν τοῦ Χριστοῦ ἁγίαν ἀνάστασιν· ἰδοὺ γὰρ ἦλθε διὰ τοῦ Σταυροῦ χαρὰ ἐν ὅλῳ τῷ κόσμῳ. Διὰ παντὸς εὐλογοῦντες τὸν Κύριον, ὑμνοῦμεν τὴν ἀνάστασιν αὐτοῦ· Σταυρὸν γὰρ ὑπομείνας δι' ἡμᾶς, θανάτῳ θάνατον ὤλεσεν.

Having beheld the Resurrection of Christ, let us worship the holy Lord Jesus, the only sinless one. Your Cross, O Christ, we venerate, and Your holy Resurrection we praise and glorify. For You are our God; apart from You we know no other; we call upon Your name. Come, all faithful, let us venerate the holy Resurrection of Christ; for behold, through the Cross, joy has come to the whole world. Ever blessing the Lord, let us praise His Resurrection; for having endured the Cross for us, He destroyed death by death.

Προλαβοῦσαι τὸν ὄρθρον αἱ περὶ Μαριάμ, καὶ εὑροῦσαι τὸν λίθον ἀποκυλισθέντα τοῦ μνήματος, ἤκουον ἐκ τοῦ Ἀγγέλου· Τὸν ἐν φωτὶ ἀϊδίῳ ὑπάρχοντα, μετὰ νεκρῶν τί ζητεῖτε ὡς ἄνθρωπον; βλέπετε τὰ ἐντάφια σπάργανα· δράμετε, καὶ τῷ κόσμῳ κηρύξατε, ὡς ἠγέρθη ὁ Κύριος, θανατώσας τὸν θάνατον· ὅτι ὑπάρχει Θεοῦ Υἱός, τοῦ σῴζοντος τὸ γένος τῶν ἀνθρώπων.

When the women with Mary had come before dawn, and they found that the stone had been rolled away from the sepulcher, they heard from the Angel, "Why do you seek among the dead, as a mortal man, the One who exists in everlasting light? See the grave clothes in the sepulcher. Run and proclaim to the world that the Lord has risen and put death to death; for He is the Son of God who saves the human race."

Εἰ καὶ ἐν τάφῳ κατῆλθες Ἀθάνατε, ἀλλὰ τοῦ ᾅδου καθεῖλες τὴν δύναμιν· καὶ ἀνέστης ὡς νικητής, Χριστὲ ὁ Θεός, γυναιξὶ Μυροφόροις φθεγξάμενος, Χαίρετε, καὶ τοῖς σοῖς Ἀποστόλοις εἰρήνην δωρούμενος, ὁ τοῖς πεσοῦσι παρέχων ἀνάστασιν.

Though You went down into the tomb, O Immortal One, yet You brought down the dominion of Hades; and You rose as the victor, O Christ our God; and You called out "Rejoice" to the Myrrh-bearing women, and gave peace to Your Apostles, O Lord who to the fallen grant resurrection.

Ἐν τάφῳ, σωματικῶς, ἐν ᾅδῃ δὲ μετὰ ψυχῆς ὡς Θεός, ἐν Παραδείσῳ δὲ μετὰ Λῃστοῦ, καὶ ἐν θρόνῳ ὑπῆρχες Χριστέ, μετὰ Πατρὸς καὶ Πνεύματος, πάντα πληρῶν ὁ ἀπερίγραπτος.

In body were You inside the sepulcher, and with Your soul in hell, as God in Paradise were You as well with the Robber, and on the throne with Father and Spirit, O Christ, filling all things, being uncircumscribed.

Δόξα.

Glory.

Ὡς ζωηφόρος, ὡς Παραδείσου ὡραιότερος, ὄντως καὶ παστάδος πάσης βασιλικῆς, ἀναδέδεικται λαμπρότερος, Χριστὲ ὁ τάφος σου, ἡ πηγὴ τῆς ἡμῶν ἀναστάσεως.

How full of life and even more beautiful than paradise, and by far more splendid than any king's royal chamber has Your sepulcher, O Christ, been shown to be, and the source of our own resurrection.

Καὶ νῦν.

Both now.

Τὸ τοῦ Ὑψίστου, ἡγιασμένον θεῖον σκήνωμα Χαῖρε· διὰ σοῦ γὰρ δέδοται ἡ χαρά, Θεοτόκε τοῖς κραυγάζουσιν· Εὐλογημένη σὺ ἐν γυναιξίν, ὑπάρχεις Πανάμωμε Δέσποινα.

Divine and hallowed habitation of the Most High God, rejoice. For through you, O Theotokos, has the joy been bestowed on us who cry aloud to you, O Lady, blessed are you among women, all-blameless one.

Κύριε, ἐλέησον. (μʹ) Δόξα. Καὶ νῦν.

Lord, have mercy. (40) Glory. Both now.

Τὴν τιμιωτέραν τῶν Χερουβείμ, καὶ ἐνδοξοτέραν, ἀσυγκρίτως τῶν Σεραφείμ, τὴν ἀδιαφθόρως, Θεὸν Λόγον τεκοῦσαν, τὴν ὄντως Θεοτόκον, σὲ μεγαλύνομεν.

Greater in honor than the Cherubim, and in glory greater beyond compare than the Seraphim; you without corruption gave birth to God the Word, and are truly Theotokos. You do we magnify.

Ἐν ὀνόματι Κυρίου εὐλόγησον, Πάτερ.

In the name of the Lord, Father, bless!

Τείχισον ἡμᾶς ἁγίοις Ἀγγέλοις σου, ὅπλισον ἡμᾶς ὅπλοις δικαιοσύνοις σου, περιχαράκωσον ἡμᾶς τῇ ἀληθείᾳ σου, φρούρησον ἡμᾶς τῇ δυνάμει σου, ῥῦσαι ἡμᾶς ἐκ πάσης περιστάσεως, καὶ πάσης ἐπιβουλῆς τοῦ ἀντικειμένου. Παράσχου δὲ ἡμῖν καὶ τὴν παροῦσαν ἑσπέραν, σὺν τῇ ἐπερχομένῃ νυκτί, τελείαν, ἁγίαν, εἰρηνικήν, ἀναμάρτητον, ἀσκανδάλιστον, ἀφάνταστον, καὶ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τῆς ζωῆς ἡμῶν πρεσβείαις τῆς ἁγίάς Θεοτόκου, καὶ πάντων τῶν Ἁγίων τῶν ἀπ' αἰῶνός σοι εὐαρεστησάντων.

Blessed are You, Master, Almighty Lord, for You light the day with the light of the sun and brighten the night with the rays of fire. You enabled us to pass the span of the day and so come to the beginnings of the night. Hear our prayer and that of all Your people, and forgive us all our deliberate and unwitting sins; receive our evening petitions and send upon Your inheritance the abundance of Your mercy and compassion. Encompass us with Your holy Angels; arm us with the weapons of Your righteousness; fortify us within Your truth; make Your strength our garrison, spare us all adverse circumstances and all assaults of the adversary. Finally, vouchsafe to us this evening, and the impending night, perfect, holy, peaceful, sinless, free of disturbing visions, and all the days of our lives, through the prayers of the Holy Theotokos and of all the Saints who have pleased You through the ages.
