Resurrection Hymn (Tone Seven): Κατέλυσας τῷ Σταυρῷ σου
O Lord, by Your sacred Cross You abolished death, and granted unto the thief blessed paradise. The Myrrh-bearers ceased lamenting and turned to joy. The Apostles did preach the Good News at Your command, that You had risen from the dead O Christ our God, bestowing Your mercy upon the world evermore.
Apolytikion for the Veneration of the Holy Cross (Tone One - Ἦχος α')
Save, O Lord, save Your people and bless Your inheritance. Give victory to those who battle evil, and protect us all by Your Holy Cross.
(Σῶσον Κύριε τὸν λαόν σου καὶ εὐλόγησον τὴν κληρονομίαν σου, νίκας τοῖς Βασιλεῦσι κατὰ βαρβάρων δωρούμενος καὶ τὸ σὸν φυλάττων διὰ τοῦ Σταυροῦ σου πολίτευμα.)
