Tone 8

Troparion (Tone 8)

Thou didst descend from on high, O Merciful One!
Thou didst accept the three day burial
to free us from our sufferings!
O Lord, our Life and Resurrection, glory to Thee!

Kontakion (Tone 6)

O Master, Teacher of wisdom,
Bestower of virtue,
Who teachest the thoughtless and

protectest the poor,
strengthen and enlighten my heart!
O Word of the Father,
let me not restrain my mouth from crying to Thee:
Have mercy on me, a transgressor,

O merciful Lord!
