Palm Sunday: The Sunday following Lazarus Saturday
Apolytikion: O Christ, Our God, we have been buried with You through Baptism, and by Your Resurrection made worthy of Life immortal. Praising You, we cry out, “Hosanna in the highest, blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord.”
Kontakion: In Heaven, He is seated upon a Throne and on Earth He rides upon a foal. O Christ our God, accept the praise of the Angels and the hymn of the Children who cry out to You, “Blessed are You who comes to recall Adam.”
Prayer: 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!
Prayer: Rolling away the stone of hardness from my heart, raise up my Soul that is slain by the passions, O loving Lord, and count me worthy in compunction to bring palms of virtue to Thee the Victor over hell. So I may obtain Eternal Life, singing the praises of Thy power and Thy compassion, for Thou alone lovest mankind.
