Sunday of the Last Judgment / Tone 3

Beatitudes on 10: Octoechos 6; Triodion 4, from Ode 6.

 

1. From paradise didst Thou drive our forefather Adam, who had broken Thy 
commandment, O Christ; but, O Compassionate One, Thou didst cause to dwell therein 
the thief who confessed Thee on the cross, crying out: “Remember me, O Savior, in Thy 
kingdom!”
 
2. With the curse of death didst Thou condemn us who had sinned, O Lord, Bestower of 
life; yet having suffered in Thy flesh, O sinless Master, Thou hast granted life unto 
mortals who cry out: “Remember us also in Thy kingdom!”
 
3. In rising from the dead, Thou hast raised us up from the passions with Thyself through 
Thy resurrection, O Lord; and all the power of death hast Thou destroyed, O Savior.  
Wherefore, with faith we cry out to Thee: “Remember us also in Thy kingdom!”
 
4. O Thou who as God grantest life, by Thy three days in the tomb Thou didst raise up 
with Thyself the dead in hell, and as One Who is good Thou hast poured forth 
incorruption upon all of us who with faith ever cry out: “Remember us also in Thy 
kingdom!”
 
5. Risen from the dead, O Savior, Thou didst first appear to the myrrh-bearing women, 
crying out: “Rejoice!” and through them Thou didst announce Thy resurrection to Thy 
friends, O Christ.  Wherefore, with faith we cry out to Thee, “Remember us also in Thy 
kingdom!”
 
6. Moses, stretching out his arms on the mountain, prefigured the Cross and thus 
conquered Amelek.  And, receiving it with faith as a mighty weapon against the demons, 
we all cry out: “Remember us also in Thy kingdom!”

 

7. At Thy fearful coming, O Christ, when Thou appearest from heaven, when the thrones

are set up and the books opened, then spare, O Savior, spare Thy creature.

 

8.  Since God is the Judge, nothing can help thee there, no zeal, no skill, no glory, no

friendship, but only the strength that thou gainest, my soul, from thy works.

 

9.  O Lord, let me not hear Thee say, “Take what is due to thee,” as Thou dost send me

from Thy presence; let me not hear Thee say, “Depart from Me into the fire of the

accursed,” but may I hear Thy words of blessing to the righteous.

 

10.  Thou art the gate, pure Lady, through which One alone has passed, going in and out,

yet not breaking the seal of thy virginity: Jesus, Adam’s Creator and thy Son.

 

Troparia

 

Tone 3:  Let the heavens be glad; let earthly things rejoice; /
for the Lord hath wrought might with His arm. /
He hath trampled down death by death; /
the first-born of the dead hath He become. /
From the belly of Hades hath He delivered us //
and Hath granted to the world great mercy.

 

Glory…  [Troparion of the Temple]

 

Both now… [Resurrectional Theotokion in the same tone as the Troparion of the

Temple… the Tone of the week is given here:]

 

Tone 3:  We hymn thee who hast mediated the salvation of our race, O Virgin Theotokos; /

for thy Son and our God, /

accepting suffering on the Cross in the flesh He had received of thee, /

hath delivered us from corruption, //

in that He is the Lover of mankind.

[Kontakion of the Temple]

 

Glory...  Both now... Tone 1:  When Thou, O God, shalt come to earth with glory, /

and all things tremble, /

and the river of fire floweth before the Judgment Seat /

and the books are opened, and the hidden things made public, /

then deliver me from the unquenchable fire  //

and deem me worthy to stand at Thy right hand, O most righteous Judge.
