Troparia and kontakia for April 11

The Raising of Lazarus (Lazarus Saturday)

Troparion — Tone 1

By raising Lazarus from the dead before Your passion, / You did confirm the universal Resurrection, O Christ God! / Like the children with the palms of victory, / We cry out to You, O Vanquisher of death; / Hosanna in the Highest! / Blessed is He that comes in the Name of the Lord!

Kontakion — Tone 2

Christ the Joy, the Truth and the Light of all, / The Life of the World and the Resurrection / Has appeared in His goodness, to those on earth. / He has become the Image of our Resurrection, / Granting divine forgiveness to all!

Hieromartyr Antipas, Bishop of Pergamum and Disciple of Saint John the Theologian

Troparion — Tone 4

By sharing in the ways of the Apostles, / you became a successor to their throne. / Through the practice of virtue, / you found the way to divine contemplation, O inspired one of God; / by teaching the word of truth without error, / you defended the Faith, even to the shedding of your blood. / Hieromartyr Antipas, entreat Christ God to save our souls.

Kontakion — Tone 2

Today with hymns and praises let us acclaim Antipas, / light of the world and famous hierarch, / champion of truth and teacher of Pergamum. / He intercedes with Christ our God that we may be saved.
