Troparion

Troparion of the Sunday, Tone VI —
The angelic powers were at Thy tomb; / the guards became as dead men. / Mary stood by Thy grave, / seeking Thy most pure Body. / Thou didst capture hell, / not being tempted by it. / Thou didst come to the Virgin, granting life. / O Lord, Who didst rise from the dead: glory to Thee!

Hymn to the Theotokos, Tone VI —
Thou Who didst call Thy mother blessed / came of Thine own will to the passion. / Shining on the cross, desiring to recall Adam, Thou didst say to the angels: / "Rejoice with Me, for the lost coin has been found." / Thou Who hast ordered all things in wisdom, / O our God, glory to Thee! (1x) Blessed be the name of the Lord, henceforth and forever more.

Kontakion of the Sunday, Tone VI —
When Christ God, the Giver of Life, / raised all of the dead from the valleys of misery with His mighty hand, / He bestowed resurrection on the human race. / He is the Savior of all, the Resurrection, the Life, and the God of all.

Deposition of the Precious Robe of the Theotokos, Troparion, Tone VIII —
O Ever-virgin Theotokos, protection of mankind:/ thou hast given to thy city a mighty legacy,/ the robe and cincture of thy most honored body,/ which have remained incorrupt through thy seedless birthgiving./ For in thee are nature and time renewed.// Wherefore, we beseech thee to grant peace to thy city and great mercy to our souls.

Kontakion, Tone IV, "Having been lifted up..." —
O pure one, full of divine grace,/ thou hast given all the faithful a garment of incorruption,/ thy sacred robe, wherewith thou didst cover thy sacred body,/ O protection of all mankind./ With love do we celebrate its deposition,/ and cry out to thee with fear, O pure one:// Rejoice, O Virgin, thou boast of Christians!

St. Juvenal, patriarch of Jerusalem, Troparion, in Tone IV —
The truth of things revealed thee to thy flock as a rule of faith, a model of meekness and teacher of abstinence. Wherefore, thou didst attain the heights through humility and riches through poverty. O father Juvenal, entreat Christ God, that our souls be saved.

Kontakion, in Tone II —
Assembling now, with hymns let us honor Juvenal, the boast of Jerusalem, the namesake of youth, who today hast been translated to the life which waxeth not old, the heir of the apostles, fellow initiate of the mysteries with the God-bearing fathers, explainer of the dogmas of Orthodoxy, denouncer of false doc­trines, the universal teacher of the Truth.
