The Divine Liturgy

Of Our Father Among the Saints

John Chrysostom
For Sunday Worship

In Modern English and Greek


New Byzantine Chant

Our Orthodox hymnology is a rich treasure


which has yet to be fully discovered by the
Faithful. Our hymnology, which teaches
our minds and uplifts our hearts, should be
studied by all of us who profess the
Orthodox faith.
+ Father John C. Poulos

The Divine Liturgy


of St. John Chrysostom
In English and Greek
New Byzantine Chant
by N. Takis

Let the people praise You, O God;


Let all the people praise You.
Psalm 67:3
Scriptural hymn texts in English are from the New King James Version of
the Holy Bible. Other hymn texts were translated by N. Takis or adapted
by N. Takis from the translations of Fr. George Papadeas, Fr. Nomikos
Vaporis, and other sources. The English parts of the Divine Liturgy which
are intoned by the priest or deacon are from the translation of Fr.
Nomikos Vaporis, published by the Holy Cross Orthodox Press.
Melodic material comes from traditional, original, and other various
sources and has been adapted for use by church choirs and congregations.
An effort was made to preserve melodies that are familiar to American
Greek Orthodox Church choirs, with an effort to keep the melodies within
the formulaic traditions of Byzantine music.

DEDICATION
This book is dedicated to the priests and hierarchs whom I, the author, have had the honor to serve, especially
Fr. John Poulos, of blessed memory, who tapped me to be his chanter; His Grace Bishop Timothy of Detroit,
of blessed memory, who asked me to translate Byzantine chant hymns into English; and Fr. Constantine
Christo, who wanted well done English language music in the choir.
Thanks to Fr. Michael Varlamos for requesting this book.

About This Book


This book, along with its Festal Hymnbook companion (both available for free at www.newbyz.org),
represents a nearly complete resource for Sunday worship in Greek Orthodox churches that employ both
Greek and English in their services. Within its covers, this book contains the complete Divine Liturgy of St.
John Chrysostom with music in staff notation, primarily in Plagal Fourth Tone. There is also music for a
First and Plagal First Tone Divine Liturgy, which can be used alternatively. The book also contains the
eight Resurrectional apolytikia, the kontakion for normal Sundays, four Cherubic hymns, the megalynarion
for the liturgy of St. Basil, hymns for the hierarchical liturgy, and the memorial and artoklasia services.
The authors had several goals in mind in creating these settings of the Divine Liturgy, which include the
following points:

To create music for lay choirs that is more in line with the traditional musical rubrics of the Greek
Orthodox Church, but easier for Western-trained musicians to perform.

To create English versions of the hymns that incorporate the formulaic rules for language that were
established by the ancients who created the Greek-language hymns.

To create music that enhances the words of Orthodox liturgical texts as an aid in prayer, both in Greek
and English.

To create a volume that would make bilingual Greek-English liturgies easy to perform.

To create liturgical music that could be used by ensembles of all sizes, all ages of the singers, and all
voice combinations.

To create liturgical music that could be performed easily without organ accompaniment in all locations
and settings, taking pitches from the chanting of the priest or deacon or from a pitch pipe.

To educate lay choirs in the history of the Divine Liturgy and in the practices of appointed chanters,
since lay choirs take the role of appointed chanters whenever they perform a service.

To make it easy to adapt each Divine Liturgy to the date and occasion upon which it is performed with a
companion hymnbook that contains most of the substitutions that are encountered from Sunday to
Sunday.

These liturgical settings are intended to offer to our lay choirs another resource with which they may
serve their clergy and congregations. We believe the material offered on www.newbyz.org can be useful to
our parishes and to the Church musicians that donate their time and talents to them.

ABOUT ORTHODOX HYMNOLOGY AND THE DIVINE LITURGY


Orthodox hymnology has its earliest roots in the Jewish synagogue. The first Christians were practicing Jews with an
established tradition of worship. The earliest Christian songs were most certainly from the Hebrew scriptures. Psalms and
canticles from the Old Testament still form the basis of many Orthodox liturgical hymns. In the early Church, these songs
were chanted by the congregation, which was often led by a solo cantor. The Church developed the practice of inserting
non-scriptural refrains (tropes) in between verses of scripture, including verses from the New Testament. These troparia
came in many forms, and were used to make commentary and reinforcement of the meaning of the texts of the verses.
The troparia were the main contribution of Christian poets and theologians, many of whom have become saints of the
Church. Later, other hymn forms which have a presence in the Divine Liturgy were established, such as the kontakion, the
processional hymns, and the megalynarion. The Liturgy evolved over time, but it has remained essentially consistent
from the time of St. Basil and St. John Chrysostom, who edited the text as it is used today.
The Octoechos: The Orthodox System of Music
It is generally accepted that harmonized music, as practiced today, was unknown to the ancients. It is certain that the
original hymns of the Church were chanted monophonically. Ancient music did possess a number of musical modes,
which consisted of various scales, tunings, and melodic formulas. The different modes varied in their ethical character. St.
John of Damascus is traditionally credited with codifying, in the Eighth Century, a system of eight modes, the Octoechos,
for use by the Church on a weekly rotating basis. These consisted of four authentic modes and their Plagal variations.
These modes have come to be referred to also as tones, from the Greek word, echos, meaning an aural tone. The First
Tone and its Plagal version are what modern musicians would consider minor in character. The Second Tone and its Plagal are pitched on a central note and are declamatory in style. The Third Tone and its Plagal form have the feel of music
in a major scale, as does the Plagal form of the Fourth Tone. The Fourth Tone itself, is neither major nor minor, but has a
tonal center not normally used in modern music. These different modes were selected because they were considered to
contain qualities which effectively conveyed and enhanced the texts. Later, variations of these basic modes were added to
the system for several reasons. Over time, these modes have taken on a two-part character which adds a second voice
(often called the ison) that drones on the tonal center of the mode against the monophonic melody.
Polyphonic harmonized music is a late addition to the Divine Liturgy. Although it first appeared in other Orthodox
jurisdictions as early as the 16th Century, it did not make its entrance into the Greek Church until the 19th Century. Today, it is widely used in America. There have been many discussions and debates about its use, which shall not be considered here. However, once melodies are harmonized, the unique ethos of each monophonic mode is either blurred or lost
altogether. Therefore, the approach to the use of harmonized music must be a careful one, with the purpose of preserving
the intentions of the Fathers when they established the musical rubrics of the Church.
The Divine Liturgy
The Divine Liturgy is the central worship service of the Orthodox Church. It accompanies the sacrament of Holy
Communion. It is always practiced on Sunday mornings, the day which commemorates the Resurrection of Christ, and on
some other calendar days of the Church. The practice of Communion was instituted by Christ himself and perpetuated by
his disciples. Rubrics and rituals became established to help sanctify the faithful that they might be well-prepared to receive the sacrament worthily, and this remains today as the main function of the Liturgy.
The Divine Liturgy differs in structure from the Vespers (evening) and Orthros (morning) services that precede it.
Whereas Vespers and Orthros are a part of the daily cycle of hourly services all Orthodox Christians may observe, the
Liturgy is a sacramental service that requires the presence of an ordained minister of the Church. It takes the form of a
chanted dialogue with roles given to the bishop (if present), the priest, the deacon (if present), and the people. In the earliest Christian services, all of the people in the congregation actively participated in chanting with the assistance of lead
musicians. The 15th canon of Council of Laodicea limits chanting to appointed singers who read from a book, and in
some places, congregations fell silent. However, today there is general agreement that the canon was not meant to prohibit Orthodox parishioners participation in the chanting, and that they should sing along with the designated musicians.
It is generally agreed that the Divine Liturgy was originally a shorter service than it is today, and that, over time, various segments were added to it. It can be divided into two parts. The first part is the liturgy of the catechumens, which was
an educational and preparatory exercise for believers and potential believers, catechumens, who were learning the faith.
In this part of the liturgy, there are litanies, psalms, daily commemorations, processions, scripture readings, and a homily.
In the second part, the liturgy of the faithful, the catechumens are excused, and the faithful reaffirm their Creed. The holy
offering of bread and wine is changed by the Holy Spirit into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. The Theotokos, Mary,
the mother of Our Lord, is magnified (honored), more prayers and petitions are given, and the faithful then reverently receive the sacrament. This is followed by a dismissal.

The Litanies and Antiphons


The last part of the Orthros service is the Great Doxology. The Liturgy begins immediately afterwards with the Great
Litany, a list of prayers offered to God by the priest or deacon, each of which are punctuated by a response of the people,
Lord, have mercy. The litany is followed by a series of Psalm readings, the so-called Typica, the first two of which
have been interspersed with the troparia, Through the intercessions (Tes Presvies) and Save us (Soson Imas). They
are referred to as antiphons because they originally were chanted antiphonally by two groups of chanters. In between the
second and third antiphons is inserted the Hymn of Justinian, Only Begotten Son (O Monoghenisios). The troparion of
the third antiphon is the daily apolytikion (see below). There are other litanies and petitions throughout the Liturgy.
The Apolytikia and Kontakion
As the hourly services of the Church became established, such as Vespers and Orthros, and as the Church calendar
developed, many troparia were written to comment upon or celebrate the various saints and feast days. The last such
troparion of the Vespers service is referred to as the apolytikion, or dismissal hymn, because it occurs just before the dismissal of the service. The apolytikion is reprised in the Orthros service and in the Divine Liturgy. Other apolytikia of
saints or events of the day are also chanted, followed by the troparion of the patron of the local parish where the Liturgy
is being celebrated. This is followed by the kontakion of the day, which originally was a long poem, but only its prelude
is used today. If there is no kontakion written for a particular feast, the default kontakion is that to the Theotokos.
The Processional Hymns
The hymns we have been speaking of up to this pointthe litany responses, troparia, kontakia, etc.are the oldest
hymns of the Liturgy, and thus, are chanted in the oldest musical style, that is, mostly with one note per syllable. They
are truly in the category of chant (which is, by definition, musically-enhanced speech), as opposed to song, because the
music was not supposed to take precedence over the words. In the Churchs system, the music for these hymns is strictly
regulated, with each being assigned a specific model melody and mode, which may be used by other hymns as well.
However, through the course of history, situations arose within the services of the Church where the music took on
greater importance in order to elongate timing of the hymns for various reasons. Newer, longer, more melodic modes
were added to each tonal family of the Octoechos for these styles of hymns. These hymns do not follow set melodies,
but mostly fall into the category of original, although they do follow rules established for these newer modes.
Processionals were a later addition to the Divine Liturgy and fall into the category of these longer hymns. The
Trisagion hymn and the Cherubic hymn make up these processions, and are vestiges of a time when the Holy Scriptures
and the Holy Gifts were stored in a building outside of the church itself and were fetched with great pomp and ceremony
as isodika (entrances). The style of music of these two hymns is referred to as papadic, because the priest has many tasks
to perform while they are being chanted. Papadic hymns are musically complex and are the most difficult ones to perform by the assigned chanters and require the greatest amount of musical artistry.
The Holy Offering, Consecration, and Megalynarion
The central part of the Divine Liturgy is the Anaphora, where the Holy Gifts are offered to the Lord, consecrated,
and changed into the Body and Blood of the Savior. The hymns of this section revert to the category of responses, except
for the Victory Hymn, in which the chanters sing the angelic Holy, Holy, Holy. In fact, research has suggested that the
so-called consecration hymn, With Hymns We Praise You, (Si Imnumen), is a completion of the priests previous petition, and was originally chanted simply on a single pitch. Since then, it has become elongated.
The so-called megalynarion, which follows the consecration, is a hymn that magnifies the Virgin Mary. Being a later
addition, it is a composed hymn that does not have a designated melodic model. Its origin depends upon which Divine
Liturgy is being chanted on a particular day. If it is the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, Truly It is Right (Axion
Estin) is the megalynarion. This hymns origin was in a revelation to a monk on Mt. Athos. In the Liturgy of St. Basil,
the megalynarion is In You Rejoices (Epi Si Cheri), which comes from a hymn in the Plagal Fourth Tone Orthros service. On major feast days, the megalynarion is from the ninth ode katavasia of the Orthros kanon of the feast.
The Communion Hymn and Dismissal
The Communion hymn, chanted during the preparation and distribution of the sacrament, is often papadic. However,
since it is from a Biblical psalm or other scripture, it is sometimes chanted as an antiphon in the form a troparion, interspersed with verses from the scriptural passage from where the hymns text originates. The Divine Liturgy then ends
with a short dismissal service of thanksgiving, blessings, and veneration of the saints and celebrations of the day.

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK


As mentioned earlier, Byzantine music uses an eight-tone (Octoechos) system of music. Each of these
tones is a family of musical modes that consist of a main note or tonal center and a particular scale of
notes which are used to create specific melodic patterns for each mode. Each tone family (echos) has
its own musical character, which allows a variety of musical expression to be applied to the thousands
of hymn texts of the Orthodox Church. Although technically, modern major and minor scales do not
exist in Byzantine music, the fact remains that Byzantine music will be heard by modern people as
having a major or minor tonality.
The primary echos of the Divine Liturgy music in this book from page 7 through page 83 is the Plagal
Fourth Tone, which is heard in the West as a major tonality. Also offered in this book is a minor tonality Divine Liturgy predominantly in the Plagal First Tone. To perform a complete minor liturgy setting,
begin on page 10 and continue through to page 35, just before the Trisagion hymn. From there, go to
page 92 and continue through to page 117. From there, return to page 78 to complete the liturgy.
One suggestion would be to perform the major Plagal Fourth Tone liturgy on those weeks where the
tone of the week is one with major tonality characteristicsthat would be the Third Tone, Grave Tone,
and Plagal Fourth Toneand perform the minor Plagal First Tone liturgy on First Tone and Plagal First
Tone Sundays. On Second Tone, Plagal Second Tone, and Fourth Tone Sundays, either the major or
minor Divine Liturgy could be used.
Some parishes like to begin and end the Divine Liturgy in a major tonality and use a minor tonality
from the Cherubic hymn to the end of the Anaphora, the Consecration hymn. This could be accomplished easily using this book. In fact, it is easy to jump to the minor liturgy at any point in the service
and return to the major liturgy at any time as well.
The music in this book is intended to be chanted unaccompanied, especially the short responses to
the priest, upon whose pitch the pitch of the responses should be based. If organ accompaniment is to
be used at all, it should be only in the longer hymns, such as the Cherubic hymn. The music does not
include dynamic or other performance markings. Because of the nature of chant as enhanced speech,
these variances in performance are left up to the lead chanter or choir director. Likewise, the ornaments, accents, special tunings and accidentals have also been omitted, but they may be added based
upon the knowledge and skill level of those who chant this music.
Inserting the special festal and hierarchical hymns of the week is also easy to do in this book. All of
the Resurrectional apolytikia are provided, as are the Trisagion hymn substitutions. Four different
Cherubic hymns are offered, which may be matched closely with the tone of the week. The megalynarion of the St. Basil Divine Liturgy is also provided. When choosing these alternate hymns, there
are always instructions at the bottom of the page telling the singer the page on which to continue.
It is up to the lead chanter or choir director to prepare beforehand the special second antiphons,
apolytikia, kontakia, megalynaria, and Communion hymns, which may be needed on any particular
feast, and insert them into the proper place in the liturgy. Detailed instructions are provided throughout this book. Most of these hymns are available in the companion Festal Hymnal, or they may be
downloaded at www.newbyz.org.
The memorial and artoklasia services are also provided in this book on pp. 84-90.

THE DIVINE LITURGY OF


ST. JOHN CHRYSOSTOM

Begin the Divine Liturgy on this page if a major key (Plagal Fourth Tone) is desired.
Begin on p. 10 if a minor key (First Tone and Plagal First Tone) is desired.
NOTE: If a hierarch is celebrating the Divine Liturgy, whenever his name is mentioned, or whenever he gives
the blessing of peace, the response of the people is Is polla eti Dhespota, or Many years to you, Master.

Priest: Blessed is the kingdom of the Father and


the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever and
to the ages of ages.

prayers with one heart. You have promised to grant the requests
of two or three gathered in Your name. Fulfill now the petitions of
Your servants for our benefit, giving us the knowledge of Your
truth in this world, and granting us eternal life in the world to
come.

NOTE: On normal Sundays, the refrain is a Resurrection apolytikion in the Tone of the week,
(see next section, pp. 18-32), followed by the Small Entrance (below). On feast days of the Lord,
the apolytikion of the feast is substituted for the Resurrectional apolytikion.

(Inaudible.) Master and Lord our God, You have established in


heaven the orders and hosts of angels and archangels to minister to
Your glory. Grant that the holy angels may enter with us that together we may serve and glorify Your goodness. For to You belong all
glory, honor, and worship to the Father and the Son and the Holy
Spirit, now and forever and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Wisdom. Let us be attentive.

(Inaudible.) Holy God, You dwell among Your saints. You are
praised by the Seraphim with the thrice holy hymn and glorified by
the Cherubim and worshiped by all the heavenly powers. You have
brought all things out of nothing into being. You have created man
and woman in Your image and likeness and adorned them with all
the gifts of Your grace. You give wisdom and understanding to the
supplicant and do not overlook the sinner but have established
repentance as the way of salvation. You have enabled us, Your
lowly and unworthy servants, to stand at this hour before the glory
of Your holy altar and to offer to You due worship and praise.
Master, accept the thrice holy hymn also from the lips of us sinners
and visit us in Your goodness. Forgive our voluntary and
involuntary transgressions, sanctify our souls and bodies, and
grant that we may worship and serve You in holiness all the days of
our lives, by the intercessions of the holy Theotokos and of all the
saints who have pleased You throughout the ages.


,
, ,
.

For You are holy, our God, and to You we give


glory, to the Father and the Son and the Holy
Spirit, now and forever and to the ages of ages.

THE PROCESSION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES


NOTE: On normal Sundays the processional hymn is the Trisagion (Thrice-Holy) Hymn, (pp.
36-37). On feasts of the Holy Cross, the processional hymn, - Before Your
Cross, (pp. 38-39) is substituted for the Trisagion Hymn. On the Nativity of Christ, Theophany,
Lazarus Saturday, Pascha, and Pentecost, the processional hymn - As Many of
You, (pp. 40-41) is substituted for the Trisagion.
When a hierarch is celebrating the Divine Liturgy, a more elaborate Trisagion Hymn is chanted,
(pp. 42-43) which is then followed by the chant, Lord, save the righteous," and then by the
tributary hymns (fimi) of the hierarchy .

God, progress in life, faith, and spiritual discernment to the faithful
who pray with us, so that they may always worship You with
reverence and love, partake of Your Holy Mysteries without blame or
condemnation, and become worthy of your heavenly kingdom.

No one bound by worldly desires and pleasures is worthy to


approach, draw near or minister to You, the King of glory. To serve
You is great and awesome even for the heavenly powers. But because
of Your ineffable and immeasurable love for us, You became man
without alteration or change. You have served as our High Priest, and
as Lord of all, and have entrusted to us the celebration of this
liturgical sacrifice without the shedding of blood. For You alone, Lord
our God, rule over all things in heaven and on earth. You are seated
on the throne of the Cherubim, the Lord of the Seraphim and the King
of Israel. You alone are holy and dwell among Your saints. You alone
are good and ready to hear. Therefore, I implore you, look upon me,
Your sinful and unworthy servant, and cleanse my soul and heart
from evil consciousness. Enable me by the power of Your Holy Spirit
so that, vested with the grace of priesthood, I may stand before Your
holy Table and celebrate the mystery of Your holy and pure Body and
Your precious Blood. To you I come with bowed head and pray: do not
turn Your face away from me or reject me from among Your children,
but make me, Your sinful and unworthy servant, worthy to offer to
You these gifts. For You, Christ our God, are the Offerer and the
Offered, the One who receives and is distributed, and to You we give
glory, together with Your eternal Father and Your holy, good and life
giving Spirit, now and forever and to the ages of ages. Amen.

The Cherubic Hymns of John Sakellarides


Traditionally, the Cherubic Hymn is composed and chanted in the Byzantine papadic form, which consists
of extended, melismatic, and highly ornamented melodic lines that are intended to draw out the length of
the hymn, so that the priest or hierarch may have time to complete the prayers and rituals of the procession
of the Holy Gifts. Most papadic hymns can only be accurately executed by a well-trained Byzantine
chanter. However, John Sakellarides composed a series of Cherubic hymns which can easily be chanted by
a lay choir reading staff notation. These compositions have become a standard for American Greek
Orthodox Church choirs. It is a common practice that the Cherubic Hymn be chanted in a mode related to
the tone of the week. Therefore, on Fourth Tone and Plagal Fourth Tone Sundays, the hymn on pp. 48-50 is
appropriate. On Second Tone and Plagal Second Tone Sundays, the hymn on pp. 51-53 may be chanted; on
Third Tone and Grave Tone Sundays, the hymn on pp. 54-56. The Cherubic Hymn for First Tone and
Plagal First Tone Sundays is on pp. 96-98, within the minor liturgy.

I believe in one God, Father Almighty,


Creator of heaven and earth, and of all things
visible and invisible.
And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the onlybegotten Son of God, begotten of the Father
before all ages;
Light of Light, true God of true God,
begotten, not created, of one essence with the
Father, through Whom all things were made.
Who for us men and for our salvation came
down from heaven and was incarnate of the
Holy Spirit and of the Virgin Mary, and
became man.
He was crucified for us under Pontius
Pilate, and suffered and was buried; and He
rose on the third day, according to the
Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at
the right hand of the Father; and He will come
again with glory to judge the living and the
dead; His Kingdom shall have no end.
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the
Creator of Life, Who proceeds from the Father,
Who together with the Father and the Son is
worshipped and glorified, Who spoke through
the prophets.
In one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of
sins. I look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the age to come. Amen.

God ineffable, beyond comprehension, invisible, beyond understanding,
existing forever and always the same; You and Your only begotten Son
and Your Holy Spirit. You brought us into being out of nothing, and
when we fell, You raised us up again. You did not cease doing everything until You led us to heaven and granted us Your kingdom to come.
For all these things we thank You and Your only begotten Son and Your
Holy Spirit; for all things that we know and do not know, for blessings
seen and unseen that have been bestowed upon us. We also thank You
for this liturgy which You are pleased to accept from our hands, even

we also proclaim and say: You are holy and most holy, You and
Your only begotten Son and Your Holy Spirit. You are holy and
most holy, and sublime is Your glory. You so loved Your world that
You gave Your only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him
should not perish, but have eternal life. He came and fulfilled the
divine Plan for us. On the night when He was delivered up, or
rather when He gave Himself up for the life of the world, He took
bread in His holy, pure, and blameless hands, gave thanks, blessed,
sanctified, broke, and gave it to His holy disciples and apostles,
saying:

, , ,

Take, eat, this is my Body which is broken for you


for the forgiveness of sins.

and all that came to pass for our sake, the cross, the tomb, the
resurrection on the third day, the ascension into heaven, the
enthronement at the right hand of the Father, and the second,
glorious coming.

We offer to You these gifts from Your own gifts


in all and for all.

You: send down Your Holy Spirit upon us and upon these gifts
here presented.

,
. .

And make this bread the precious Body of Your Christ. Amen.

, . .

And that which is in this cup the precious Blood of Your Christ.
Amen.

Changing them by Your Holy Spirit.

Amen. Amen. Amen.

,
, ,
, ,
.
, ,
, , , , ,
, , ,
.

So that they may be to those who partake of them for vigilance of


soul, forgiveness of sins, communion of Your Holy Spirit,
fulfillment of the kingdom of heaven, confidence before You, and
not in judgment or condemnation. Again, we offer this spiritual
worship for those who repose in the faith, forefathers, fathers,
patriarchs, prophets, apostles, preachers, evangelists, martyrs,
confessors, ascetics, and for every righteous spirit made perfect
in faith.

Especially for our most holy, pure, blessed, and


glorious Lady, the Theotokos and ever-virgin
Mary.

(On certain feasts the megalynarion of the day is substituted.)

Again, we ask You, Lord, remember all Orthodox bishops who


rightly teach the word of Your truth, all presbyters, all deacons
in the service of Christ, and every one in holy orders. We also
offer to You this spiritual worship for the whole world, for the
holy, catholic, and apostolic Church, and for those living in
purity and holiness. And for all those in public service; permit
them, Lord, to serve and govern in peace that through the
faithful conduct of their duties we may live peaceful and serene
lives in all piety and holiness.

, ,

, , ,
,
.

Above all, remember, Lord, our father and


Metropolitan (Name). Grant that he may serve
Your holy churches in peace. Keep him safe,
honorable, and healthy for many years, rightly
teaching the word of Your truth. Remember also,
Lord, those whom each of us calls to mind and all
Your people.

(Inaudible.) I believe and confess, Lord, that You are truly the
Christ, the Son of the living God, who came into the world to save
sinners, of whom I am the first. I also believe that this is truly
Your pure Body and that this is truly Your precious Blood.
Therefore, I pray to You, have mercy upon me, and forgive my
transgressions, voluntary and involuntary, in word and deed,
known and unknown. And make me worthy without
condemnation to partake of Your pure Mysteries for the
forgiveness of sins and for life eternal. Amen.
How shall I, who am unworthy, enter into the splendor of
Your saints? If I dare to enter into the bridal chamber, my
clothing will accuse me, since it is not a wedding garment; and
being bound up, I shall be cast out by the angels. In Your love
Lord, cleanse my soul and save me.
Loving Master, Lord Jesus Christ, my God, let not these holy
Gifts be to my condemnation because of my unworthiness, but for
the cleansing and sanctification of soul and body and the pledge
of the future life and kingdom. It is good for me to cling to God
and to place in Him the hope of my salvation.
Receive me today, Son of God, as a partaker of Your mystical
Supper. I will not reveal Your mystery to Your adversaries. Nor
will I give You a kiss as did Judas. But as the thief I confess to You:
Lord, remember me in Your kingdom.

MEMORIAL SERVICE

Plagal First Tone

, , .

Blessed are You, O Lord, teach me Your statutes.

,
, , ,
,
, .

The choir of Saints has found the fountain of life and the
door of Paradise. May I also find the way through repentance. I am the sheep that is lost: O Savior, call me back and
save me.

, , .

Blessed are You, O Lord, teach me Your statutes.

, ,
, ,
, ,
.

Of old You created me from nothing and honored me with


Your divine image. But when I disobeyed Your commandment, O Lord, You cast me down to the earth from where I
was taken. Lead me back again to Your likeness, and renew
my original beauty.

, , .

Blessed are You, O Lord, teach me Your statutes.

, ,
,
,
, .

I am an image of Your ineffable glory, though I bear the


scars of my transgressions. On Your creation, Master, take
pity and cleanse me by Your compassion. Grant me the
homeland for which I long and once again make me a
citizen of Paradise.

, , .

Blessed are You, O Lord, teach me Your statutes.

, ,
, ,
,
,
.

Give rest, O God, to Your servants, and place them in


Paradise where the choirs of the Saints and the righteous
will shine as the stars of heaven. To Your departed servants
give rest, O Lord, and forgive all their offenses.

, , ...

Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

, ,
, ,
, ,
, .

The threefold radiance of the one God let us praise, and let
us shout in song: Holy are You, eternal Father, coeternal
Son, and divine Spirit! Illumine us who worship You in faith
and deliver us from the eternal fire.

... , . .

Now and forever and to the ages of ages. Amen.

, ,
,
, , .

Rejoice, gracious Lady, who for the salvation of all gave


birth to God in the flesh, and through whom the human
race has found salvation. Through you, pure and blessed
Theotokos, may we find Paradise.

, , , . [3]

Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia. Glory to You, O God (3).

Among the saints, grant now rest, O Christ, to the souls of


your servants, where there shall be no pain, no sorrow, no
anguished sigh, but only life that shall have no end.

(Inaudible.) Shine within our hearts, loving Master, the pure light
of Your divine knowledge and open the eyes of our minds that we
may comprehend the message of your Gospel. Instill in us also
reverence for Your blessed commandments, so that having
conquered sinful desires, we may pursue a spiritual life, thinking
and doing all those things that are pleasing to You. For You, Christ
our God, are the light of our souls and bodies, and to You we give
glory together with Your Father who is without beginning and
Your all holy, good, and life giving Spirit, now and forever and to

from every defilement of flesh and spirit, and grant that we may
stand before Your holy altar without blame or condemnation. Grant
also, O God, progress in life, faith, and spiritual discernment to the
faithful who pray with us, so that they may always worship You
with reverence and love, partake of Your Holy Mysteries without
blame or condemnation, and become worthy of your heavenly
kingdom.

No one bound by worldly desires and pleasures is worthy to


approach, draw near or minister to You, the King of glory. To
serve You is great and awesome even for the heavenly powers.
But because of Your ineffable and immeasurable love for us, You
became man without alteration or change. You have served as
our High Priest, and as Lord of all, and have entrusted to us the
celebration of this liturgical sacrifice without the shedding of
blood. For You alone, Lord our God, rule over all things in heaven
and on earth. You are seated on the throne of the Cherubim, the
Lord of the Seraphim and the King of Israel. You alone are holy
and dwell among Your saints. You alone are good and ready to
hear. Therefore, I implore you, look upon me, Your sinful and
unworthy servant, and cleanse my soul and heart from evil
consciousness. Enable me by the power of Your Holy Spirit so
that, vested with the grace of priesthood, I may stand before Your
holy Table and celebrate the mystery of Your holy and pure Body
and Your precious Blood. To you I come with bowed head and
pray: do not turn Your face away from me or reject me from
among Your children, but make me, Your sinful and unworthy
servant, worthy to offer to You these gifts. For You, Christ our
God, are the Offerer and the Offered, the One who receives and is
distributed, and to You we give glory, together with Your eternal
Father and Your holy, good and life giving Spirit, now and forever
and to the ages of ages. Amen.

I believe in one God, Father Almighty,


Creator of heaven and earth, and of all things
visible and invisible.
And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the onlybegotten Son of God, begotten of the Father
before all ages;
Light of Light, true God of true God,
begotten, not created, of one essence with the
Father, through Whom all things were made.
Who for us men and for our salvation came
down from heaven and was incarnate of the
Holy Spirit and of the Virgin Mary, and
became man.
He was crucified for us under Pontius
Pilate, and suffered and was buried; and He
rose on the third day, according to the
Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at
the right hand of the Father; and He will come
again with glory to judge the living and the
dead; His Kingdom shall have no end.
And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the
Creator of Life, Who proceeds from the Father,
Who together with the Father and the Son is
worshipped and glorified, Who spoke through
the prophets.
In one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of
sins. I look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the age to come. Amen.

and Your Holy Spirit. You brought us into being out of nothing, and
when we fell, You raised us up again. You did not cease doing everything until You led us to heaven and granted us Your kingdom to come.
For all these things we thank You and Your only begotten Son and Your

seen and unseen that have been bestowed upon us. We also thank You

(Inaudible.) Together with these blessed powers, merciful Master,


we also proclaim and say: You are holy and most holy, You and
Your only begotten Son and Your Holy Spirit. You are holy and
most holy, and sublime is Your glory. You so loved Your world that
You gave Your only begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him
should not perish, but have eternal life. He came and fulfilled the
divine Plan for us. On the night when He was delivered up, or
rather when He gave Himself up for the life of the world, He took
bread in His holy, pure, and blameless hands, gave thanks, blessed,
sanctified, broke, and gave it to His holy disciples and apostles,
saying:

, , ,
, .

Take, eat, this is my Body which is broken for you


for the forgiveness of sins.

Covenant which is shed for you and for many for
the forgiveness of sins.

(Inaudible.) Remembering, therefore, this command of the Savior,


and all that came to pass for our sake, the cross, the tomb, the
resurrection on the third day, the ascension into heaven, the
enthronement at the right hand of the Father, and the second,
glorious coming.

We offer to You these gifts from Your own gifts


in all and for all.

(Inaudible.) Once again we offer to You this spiritual worship

You: send down Your Holy Spirit upon us and upon these gifts
here presented.

(Inaudible.) For Saint John the prophet, forerunner, and baptist; for
the holy glorious and most honorable Apostles, for Saints(s)
(Names) whose memory we commemorate today; and for all Your
saints, through whose supplications, God, bless us. Remember
also all who have fallen asleep in the hope of resurrection unto
eternal life. (Here the priest commemorates the names of the
deceased.) And grant them rest, our God, where the light of Your
countenance shines.

Again, we ask You, Lord, remember all Orthodox bishops who


rightly teach the word of Your truth, all presbyters, all deacons
in the service of Christ, and every one in holy orders. We also
offer to You this spiritual worship for the whole world, for the
holy, catholic, and apostolic Church, and for those living in
purity and holiness. And for all those in public service; permit
them, Lord, to serve and govern in peace that through the
faithful conduct of their duties we may live peaceful and serene
lives in all piety and holiness.

Above all, remember, Lord, our father and


Metropolitan (Name). Grant that he may serve
Your holy churches in peace. Keep him safe,
honorable, and healthy for many years, rightly
teaching the word of Your truth. Remember also,

the travelers, the sick, the suffering, and the captives, granting
them protection and salvation. Remember, Lord, those who do
charitable work, who serve in Your holy churches, and who care
for the poor. And send Your mercy upon us all.

And grant that with one voice and one heart we

power You created all things and by Your great mercy You
brought everything from nothing into being. Master, look down
from heaven upon those who have bowed their heads before You;
they have bowed not before flesh and blood but before you the
awesome God. Therefore, Master, guide the course of our life for
our benefit according to the need of each of us. Sail with those who
sail; travel with those who travel; and heal the sick, Physician of
our souls and bodies.

(Inaudible.) I believe and confess, Lord, that You are truly the
Christ, the Son of the living God, who came into the world to save
sinners, of whom I am the first. I also believe that this is truly
Your pure Body and that this is truly Your precious Blood.
Therefore, I pray to You, have mercy upon me, and forgive my
transgressions, voluntary and involuntary, in word and deed,
known and unknown. And make me worthy without
condemnation to partake of Your pure Mysteries for the
forgiveness of sins and for life eternal. Amen.
How shall I, who am unworthy, enter into the splendor of
Your saints? If I dare to enter into the bridal chamber, my
clothing will accuse me, since it is not a wedding garment; and
being bound up, I shall be cast out by the angels. In Your love
Lord, cleanse my soul and save me.
Loving Master, Lord Jesus Christ, my God, let not these holy
Gifts be to my condemnation because of my unworthiness, but for
the cleansing and sanctification of soul and body and the pledge
of the future life and kingdom. It is good for me to cling to God
and to place in Him the hope of my salvation.
Receive me today, Son of God, as a partaker of Your mystical
Supper. I will not reveal Your mystery to Your adversaries. Nor
will I give You a kiss as did Judas. But as the thief I confess to You:
Lord, remember me in Your kingdom.

PRONUNCIATION GUIDE TO GREEK PHONETICS


All music in this book has a phonetic transliteration beneath the Greek texts. The English alphabet
is used, and consonants are pronounced as they are in English with the exception of the gutteral g
which is represented by gh, the voiced th which is represented by dh, and the gutteral k, represented by
ch. (The English ch blend does not exist in Greek). The five Greek vowel sounds are represented as
follows: a = ah, e = eh, i or y = ee, o = oh, and ou = long u. Consecutive vowels should be pronounced
separately, e. g., zoin would be pronounced zoh-een, not zoyn; eleison is pronounced eh-leh-ee-sohn.
