Sunday after Epiphany
Tone of the week: Grave Tone
Resurrectional Apolytikion in the Grave Tone
Thou didst abolish death by Thy Cross; Thou didst open Paradise to the thief; Thou didst transform the myrrh-bearers' lamentation, and didst bid Thine Apostles to preach that Thou art risen, O Christ God, granting great mercy to the world.
Apolytikion in the First Tone
At Your Baptism in the Jordan, O Lord, * worship of the Trinity was revealed, * for the Father's voice bore witness to You, * calling You His 'beloved Son,' * and the Spirit in the form of a dove confirmed the truth of these words. * O Christ God, Who appeared and enlightened the world, glory to You!
Seasonal Kontakion in the Fourth Tone
You appeared to the world today, and Your light, O Lord, has left its mark upon us. With fuller understanding we sing to You: "You came, You were made manifest, the unapproachable light."
