Joachim and AnnaTwenty-Eighth Week After Pentecost

When You descended to death, O Immortal Life, * You slew Hades with the lightning of Your divinity. * And when You raised the dead from the depths of the earth, * all the heavenly Powers cried out: * “O Giver of Life, Christ our God, glory to You!” (Troparion, Tone 2)

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

You arose from the tomb, O All-Powerful Savior, * and, seeing the miracle, Hades was terrified and the dead arose. * At this sight, all creation rejoices with You, * Adam shares in the joy; and the world, O my Savior, praises You forever in song. (Kontakion, Tone 2).
