HIDE TROPARION

New Martyrs of the Turkish Yoke, Troparion, in Tone III —
The new martyrs, who with unremitting battle have cast down the ancient deception, have exalted the Faith of the Orthodox; for, having abolished the worship of the iniquitous and professed Christ boldly, they now unceas­ingly entreat Him as perfect God, that He grant us great mercy.

Kontakion of the new martyrs, in Tone I —
Rejoice mystically, O Church of Christ, beholding thy children, the new martyrs, standing round about thy table in their relics, like newly planted olive shoots; and cry aloud to the Creator of all: Thou art the confirmation of the martyrs, O Christ!

Troparion of the Sunday, Tone II —
When Thou didst descend to death, O Life immortal, / Thou didst slay hell with the splendor of Thy Godhead! / And when from the depths Thou didst raise the dead, / all the powers of heaven cried out: / O Giver of life, Christ our God, glory to Thee!

Hymn to the Theotokos, Tone II —
All beyond thought, all most glorious, / are your mysteries, O Theotokos. / Sealed in purity, preserved in virginity, / you were revealed to be the true Mother who gave birth to the true God. / Entreat Him to save our souls.

Kontakion of the Sunday, Tone II —
Hell became afraid, O Almighty Savior, / seeing the miracle of Thy Resurrection from the tomb! / The dead arose! Creation, with Adam, beheld this and rejoiced with Thee! / And the world, O my Savior, praises Thee forever.

Holy Apostle Jude, Brother of the Lord, Troparion, Tone I —
Knowing thee to be the kinsman of the Christ/ and a steadfast martyr, O Jude,/ with sanctity we praise thee/ who trampled falsehood underfoot and preserved the Faith./ Wherefore, celebrating thy most holy memory today,// through thy supplications we receive remission of sins.

Kontakion, Tone II: "Seeking the highest..." —
As one who conversed with Paul,/ with him thou didst announce the procla­mation of divine grace,/ O blessed apostle Jude,/ who hast uttered divine mys­teries.// Wherefore, we cry out to thee: Cease thou never to pray for us all.

Kontakion, Tone II: "The steadfast..." —
Thou wast shown, for thine adamantine mind, to be the chosen disciple/ and a steadfast pillar of the Church of Christ,/ and thou didst preach the word of Christ to the nations,/ telling them to believe in the one Godhead;/ and, glori­fied by Him, thou hast received the gift of healings,// to cure the infirmities of those who have recourse unto thee, O most lauded apostle Jude.

Tipikon Signs

– vigil for great feasts; a more festive service where all of the unfixed hymns are dedicated to the feast.
– "vigil" to a certain saint when All Night vigil is celebrated. The order of the service is similar to a “Polyeleos” (magnification) service, in that small vespers, great vespers and matins are combined (from this comes the vigil) and that there is the blessing of breads and the anointing with oil at the end of matins.
– "cross", "Polyeleos", "with the Polyeleos", "Polyeleos service", that is the type of service during which the "Polyeleos" (Praise/Magnification) is sung during matins (the majestic singing of the 134 and 135 psalms with verses); in addition, during this service there is a reading from the Gospel, the prokeimenon, gradual antiphons, the canon with 8 troparions, the praises and Great Doxology are sung, and during vespers "Blessed is the man" is sung (first "Glory" of the 1st kathisma), there is an entrance, Old Testament readings (parameia) and during lityia all of the verses may be sung to the saint.
– "doxology", "with doxology" during this service to the saint it is proper to sing the Great Doxology at the end of matins (in services of a lower rank, the doxology is read), also at this service are sung several Sunday Theotokions, sedalions after the kathisma (psaltery reading) to the saint, the katavasia during the canon, also at the end of matins are sung the praise verses, the Great Doxology, and the entire ending of matins follows the order of a feast.
– "six verse", "up to six"; all six stikhera of "Lord, I cry" are sung to the saint, there is a stikhera for "Glory" of the Apotischa for both vespers and matins; troparion to the saint, and the canon of matins is sung to the saint in six troparions.
, , no sign – "without a sign"; the most ordinary, daily service to a saint, to whom it is customary to sing only three stikhera at "Lord I cry" and the canon of matins in four troparions. There may not be a troparion to the saint.
